A court heard that Asa Davison allegedly killed his pregnant partner Isabelle Irish’s unborn baby by brutally kicking and punching her. It has been claimed that the man did this because he didn’t want to bring up another man’s child, the court heard. The court heard that jealousy and resentment fueled the man’s rage over his girlfriend’s pregnancy by another man.

Mr Davison allegedly attacked Isabelle Irish while she was 29 weeks pregnant.

Mr Davison is from Gillingham, Dorset.

It has been claimed that he deliberately kicked and punched Miss Irish in the stomach and dragged her along the road to kill her unborn child.

Later, she was found cowering in a back garden of a house by a homeowner who called the police.

Miss Irish was then rushed to hospital where a scan detected no fetal heartbeat and eventually she gave birth to her dead baby.

The court heard that her baby was perfectly healthy during her 20-week scan.

The 35-year-old Mr Davison has now been charged with the lesser-known offence of child destruction.

Child destruction comes under the Infant Life Preservation Act.

The incident allegedly happened on May 29, 2020.

Prosecutor Sarah Jones said the defendant was bitter about the prospect of raising another man’s child.

Ms Jones said: “Isabelle Irish was heavily pregnant when she met Ace (Asa) Davison with the father of her child believed to be a man called Oliver Curran.

“On the night of May 29, 2020, the defendant erupted into violence which the Crown says caused her to lose her 29-week old baby and suffer serious injuries to herself.

“One witness described the defendant as treating the woman like a dog on a lead and kicking her up the road.

“She saw him punch her in the face, drag her along the road and kick her in the belly.

“Another resident heard a sound like someone dragging a bag of compost.

“Miss Irish was taken to hospital where she was found to have significant facial injuries.

“An ultrasound detected no fetal heartbeat and confirmed the baby died inside her, which at the 20-week scan was developing normally and without concern.

“When you look at the evidence it is inescapable that the person responsible for the untimely death of Miss Irish’s child was the man who had earlier spoken of his resentment at feeding and raising another man’s child.

“That man kicked, punched and dragged her along a road and she ran from him while he hunted for her.”
