(Newser) – A drunk pregnant woman who led cops on a high-speed car chase that ended in a crash will likely be charged with killing her fetus, according to Georgia authorities. Officials are awaiting results from an autopsy of the fetus and toxicology tests on the woman, 21, who was approximately 6 months pregnant, ABC News reports. The woman could get 15 years in prison if convicted of "feticide by vehicle," which can apply to any pregnancy, regardless of the age of a fetus.
