A 44-year-old man in Florida named Peter J. Fehily was jailed after attacking this 26-year-old girlfriend after they argued about her recent abortion.
The woman told deputies that she and Fehily were arguing over her abortion when he chased her into the garage. The woman hid in a vehicle, but Fehily broke the glass and stabbed at her with a broken beer bottle, a report says.
