HASTINGS (WKZO) -- A Delton man is facing a second-degree murder charge for allegedly killing his girlfriend and a second charge for the death of his unborn child.

Derrick McElhaney was arraigned Thursday for a fatal car accident in May that police and prosecutors say was intentional to kill Faith Allen.  The 23-year-old suspect allegedly ran his car into a tree on M-43 in Rutland Township on May 12th, just hours after a home pregnancy test showed Allen was carrying a child.

Other charges include heroin possession.
