CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - In a story May 14 about a Chattanooga man charged in the death of a teen’s unborn child, The Associated Press reported erroneously when the teen was attacked. The incident occurred in May 2015, not May 2016.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Chattanooga man due in court in death of pregnant woman’s child

A 24-year-old Chattanooga man is facing a first-degree murder charge in the fatal injuring of an unborn child

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - A 24-year-old Chattanooga man charged with killing an unborn child has a court hearing later this month. Chattanooga Police say he beat the child’s mother, a 15-year-old pregnant girl.

Chattanooga Police say Justin Armour attacked the girl in May 2015 in a vacant house. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports (https://bit.ly/1TdzK1v) she gave birth to the couple’s stillborn baby the next day.

The girl, who was not identified because she is a minor, was five months pregnant.

Police say Armour locked the girl in a bedroom and beat her repeatedly throughout the day and into the night.

Armour was indicted in February on charges of first-degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault. He is due in court for a hearing on May 25. He is being held in the Hamilton County Jail on a $750,000 bond.
