ROME, Ga. (AP) _ No charges will be filed against the widow of a
Berry College coach who is accused of self-aborting two fetuses --
one in Florida and one in Georgia -- and keeping them in a storage
The district attorney in Rome, Georgia, says they weren't able
to find any charges that fit the situation.
Authorities in Bay County (Florida) received a tip a year ago
that Sarah Jo Warner Izard, the wife of the late coach Jim Izard,
told friends there that she kept the remains of two fetuses in a
storage shed in Georgia.
Investigators found two human fetuses hidden in containers in
the storage area. Izard reportedly told authorities shortly after
her husband's February 2006 suicide that she performed the
abortions herself with a coat hanger. Izard and her husband moved
to Florida following his resignation from Berry in 2005.
Indiana University paid Jim Izard to settle a discrimination
lawsuit he filed against the school more than four years ago.
