Uganda v. Kafuruka

The defendant injected a young woman with the intention to administer an abortion.  The woman and her fetus died.  The Court found the defendant guilty of murder of the deceased because the defendant had the intent to kill the fetus.  The Court reasoned that the intent to abort the fetus was sufficient to establish the mens rea element of murder.
