Police in Sanford, Florida, charged a 21-year-old man with double homicide in the killing of his pregnant girlfriend and preborn child, an action police believe was motivated by her refusal to get an abortion.
Sanford police arrested the former boyfriend, Donovan Faison, on Tuesday, Aug. 29, for the November 2022 killing. He was charged with two counts of felony homicide: one for the death of his 19-year-old girlfriend, Kaylin Fiengo, and the other for the death of her preborn child, with whom she had been pregnant for about 12 weeks.
According to police, Fiengo planned to meet with Faison on the night of the homicide at Coastline Park in Sanford. An officer patrolling the area found Fiengo dead in her vehicle in the parking lot. The police said she died from an apparent gunshot wound while sitting in the driver’s side of the vehicle.
Investigators discovered that Fiengo and Faison had argued about her pregnancy in the weeks before the homicide and that Faison wanted Fiengo to have an abortion, but she refused to do so. The investigators believe her refusal to abort her child is the probable motive for the homicide.
