LOS ANGELES, California, October 26, 2009 ( – Los Angeles police say they have arrested a 37-year-old man in the pre-dawn hours this morning for the murder of an unborn baby at 13 weeks' gestation.

According to a police department press release, 37-year-old businessman Joshua Woodward is now being held at the Wilshire Jail on $2 million bail in connection with the child's death. The child is believed to have been Woodward's son.

The arrest followed an investigation into what police called “the suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage.” Police gave no information on the child's mother, other than that she is living.
