(Appleton Post-Crescent) A man who was accused of putting an abortion-inducing drug in his girlfriend’s drink was sentenced Tuesday to 22 years in prison.

Manishkumar Patel, 45, was convicted in August of attempted first-degree intentional homicide of an unborn child. His girlfriend didn’t ingest the drink, but miscarried weeks later.

Outagamie County Judge John Des Jardins also sentenced Patel to four years of extended supervision.
