Two women plead guilty to criminal abortion

Two women admitted to forcing turpentine down a teen's throat in an attempt to cause an abortion while a third woman facing the same charge still sits in jail.

Shonda Blackshire, 28, and Moncia Johnson, 29, pleaded guilty Tuesday to criminal abortion -- a charge that netted both women two years on probation and 40 hours of community service.

A third woman charged with the offense, Rozellette Blackshire, 46, is accused of stabbing a friend 20 times in June. She remains in the Muscogee County Jail.
