WAKEENEY — A man arrested last week in Trego County has been formally charged with murder.
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today filed formal criminal charges against Scott Robert Bollig, WaKeeney, who was arrested Feb. 20.
Bollig, 30, has been charged with first-degree murder for what the complaint says was the killing of an unborn child, “believed to be between 8 and 10 weeks gestation.” The complaint cites KSA 21-5419, commonly known as Alexa’s Law.
The crime is alleged to have occurred on or about Jan. 26 in Trego County. Bollig is accused of putting a crushed form of medication used to terminate a pregnancy on food. The complaint, filed in Trego County District Court, called the allegation “intentional and premeditated.”
Bollig also was charged with alternate counts of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated battery and distribution of adulterated food.
The state’s witness list includes several law enforcement and medical professionals, as well as the mother of the unborn child.
Bollig was scheduled to make a first appearance in court Tuesday afternoon in front of Judge Glenn Braun, according to Clint Blaes, spokesman for Schmidt’s office.
The Kansas Attorney General’s Office is prosecuting the case at the request of the Trego County Attorney Tony Potter, who will assist with the prosecution. Assistant Attorney General Jessica Domme filed the charges on behalf of Schmidt.
