Movie Prompted Man to Admit Killing Pregnant Girlfriend.
Leach says he started thinking about killing Wilson the day after the 19-year-old told him she was pregnant. He has called himself a coward, conceding that he feared being abandoned by his family for getting Wilson pregnant.
Leach has said he might have spared Wilson's life if she had agreed to obtain an abortion or if she had begged for mercy, but she did neither.
Research indicates that violence against women escalates during pregnancy, often in connection with a woman's refusal to have an abortion.
