Police: Doctor admits giving miscarriage-inducing drug

The Associated Press

        DAYTON, Ohio — A doctor accused of giving his ex-girlfriend prescription drugs to try to cause a miscarriage told police he wanted to “get rid of the problem,” a detective says.

        Huber Heights Detective Jeff Colvin testified Monday at a hearing for Dr. Maynard Muntzing II and his wife, Tammy Muntzing, accused of supplying the drug.

        Dr. Muntzing, 34, of Lima, is accused of spiking the drinks of Michelle Baker, 33, of Huber Heights with Cytotec, a stomach treatment drug that can trigger miscarriages.

        Detective Colvin said he asked Dr. Muntzing, “Why Cytotec?”

        “He said he wanted to get rid of the problem. I said, "The baby?' He shook his head yes,” Detective Colvin testified.
