Torey Branch punched his seven-month-pregnant girlfriend in the abdomen so hard and so repeatedly that she miscarried, which was his intention.

However, Branch will not be charged with murder, nor with manslaughter, in the intentional, premeditated, coordinated killing of his baby.

Branch is on trial for “forced abortion.”

Wednesday, jurors watched a surveillance video of the murder. The victim, Mia Jones, burst into uncontrollable tears when the video was shown.

“I felt like I was going to die,” the 35-year-old mother of four testified, after realizing Branch’s intentions. The two had dated on and off for nine years.

Mia’s crying was so heart-wrenching that the judge, Alexander Jeong, stopped the trial and had the jury step out of the courtroom, to give Mia time to compose herself.
Mia was beaten by Branch and a cohort and left unconscious, lying in a pool of blood. Upon gaining consciousness, Mia told jurors, “I just lay there, holding my breath, because I didn’t want them to know I was still alive.”

Mia had repeatedly refused Branch’s attempts to schedule an abortion of their baby, whom she was going to name Kennedy Victoria. Mia also told Branch that she was going to tell Branch’s other girlfriend about the baby.

Branch set up his girlfriend by telling her he wanted to meet with her and was bringing her shrimp and fries. Instead, Branch’s cohort arrived and began beating and choking Mia. Then Branch himself arrived and finished the job of killing his child.

Kennedy Victoria died from the beating. Mia had to undergo a c-section to deliver the child’s dead body.

‘I just wanted to hold her I wanted her to breathe and wake up, she was lifeless so was so innocent and beautiful. I loved her with all my life,’ Jones testified in Branch’s Brooklyn Supreme Court criminal trial.

“This man murdered that innocent child and battered the baby’s mother,” the pro-life lawyer said. “How far we have drifted from the days where men would consider ‘women and children first’? Now, men are avoiding their responsibilities.”

Casey concluded, “This man should go to jail for murder and assault.”

Search history: Police this week told jurors that Torey Branch (pictured in court in December) googled phrases like 'Can being hit in the stomach cause a miscarriage?' and 'What happens if a pregnant woman gets hit in the stomach?' before the alleged assault

After the alleged beating, Jones was left with two fractured eyes and she needed two blood transfusions and stitches for the wound near her eye.

‘My face was really big and heavy… I was in the most pain of my entire life,’ she told the court a few days ago.

A man named Elijah Green was originally found to be the second man in the attack but surveillance footage showed that the actual attacker was six inches shorter.

‘I felt bad for saying it was him. I didn’t want someone to get locked up for something they didn’t do,’ Jones said.

‘I thought it was him. I believed it was him.’

A few days before the attack, police said Branch searched for the phrases “Can being hit in the stomach cause a miscarriage?” and “What happens if a pregnant woman gets hit in the stomach?” He also deleted his text messages with Jones a few days before the attack, according to police.

Branch’s attorneys have argued that Jones had multiple sexual partners, one of which could have been responsible for the attack.

A month later, a Brooklyn judge sentenced Branch to 25 years in prison for first-degree burglary, up to seven years for first-degree abortion and one year for third-degree assault, according to the news report. A jury found him guilty of those charges last month, the report states.

Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson condemned Branch for the brutal attack on Jones and her seven-month unborn daughter, who died as a result.

“Torey Branch deserves to spend every day of the next 27 years locked away in a prison cell for his cowardly, brutal and simply inhumane attack on a pregnant woman that caused the victim to suffer horrific injuries, left her unconscious and needing two blood transfusions – all because he did not want her to have their baby,” Thompson said.

    makes no sense on how someone could do that, she wanted her baby and the abuse from him caused her thoughts to shift. He could’ve just left her he didn’t need to take things into his own hands
