Man Stabs His Girlfriend More Than Two Dozen Times Because She Refused an Abortion

by Micaiah Bilger, Life News, March 24, 2017

A Hawaii jury convicted a man of murdering his ex-girlfriend in December after prosecutors said he stabbed her to death for refusing to abort their unborn child.

Steven Capobianco, of Maui, was supposed to be sentenced on Friday for second-degree murder and arson, Hawaii News Now reports. According to the report, Capobianco could face 20 years to life in prison.

According to police, the ex-girlfriend, Charli Scott, was five months pregnant with their unborn child when she was killed. Prosecutors said Capobianco lured her to a remote area, claiming that his truck had broken down, and then tortured and stabbed her about 20 times; police said he also set fire to her vehicle. Prosecutors alleged that Capobianco murdered Scott in revenge for her refusing to have an abortion.

The report does not mention her unborn child who also was killed in the attack. It does not appear that there were any charges in connection to the unborn child’s death.

Police said they never found the full remains of Scott’s body, only some of her bones, hair and clothing, according to the report.

Here’s more from the Daily Mail:

Scott decided to continue with the pregnancy even though Capobianco insisted on an abortion, [Prosecuting Attorney Robert] Rivera said.

In an early interview with detectives, Capobianco said about the pregnancy, ‘Admittedly, I’m not thrilled about having a child. It’s not what I was planning on doing at 24 … I’m a single, 24-year-old male who has a dog and I can barely keep me and my dog… I mean like yeah, we eat pretty well, but it’s like I have a dollar in my pocket right now until my next paycheck. I don’t have any spare cash for a child.’

But he claimed he saw how happy it made her and then was ‘all for it,’ according to KHON. He even claimed his new girlfriend, Cassie, was fine with the baby news and willing to try to make things work.

Capobianco was determined to have been the last person to see Scott alive on Feb. 9, 2014; and her family reported her missing the next day, Maui Now reports. Police also reported seeing burn marks on his hands when they interviewed him soon after Scott’s death.

Pregnant women face high levels of domestic violence. One in six women is first abused during pregnancy, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Sometimes the abuse occurs after the woman refuses her partner’s demands to have an abortion, as it did with a Pennsylvania case in 2015.

In June, LifeNews reported another gruesome case involving a North Carolina woman who allegedly was murdered by her boyfriend after refusing to abort their child.

And in March 2016, a Brooklyn, New York man was sentenced to 32 years in prison for a similar case. A jury found Torey Branch, 35, guilty of abortion, burglary and assault for beating his pregnant girlfriend and causing the death of their unborn child, LifeNews reported.
