A man has been accused of brutally bashing his pregnant girlfriend – causing her to have a miscarriage.
Jack Shearman, 21, allegedly bashed the 19-year-old in the face and stomach while they were travelling from Queensland to Condobolin in New South Wales.

Jack Shearman (pictured), 21, allegedly bashed the 19-year-old while they were travelling from Queensland to Condobolin, in New South Wales.
The pair travelled to Orange for further treatment, when the woman gave birth in the car.
‘Unfortunately this violence has caused her to miscarry and has ultimately resulted in a stillborn child,’ Detective Chief Inspector Bruce Grassick told 7 News.
‘It’s tragic, there’s no doubt about it.’
Inquiries revealed Mr Shearman and the woman had allegedly been involved in verbal arguments while travelling to Condobolin.
During the journey, Mr Shearman allegedly attacked her, striking her twice in the face and stomach.
Mr Shearman was arrested and taken to Orange Police Station, where he was charged with reckless grievous bodily harm and contravene prohibition/restriction in AVO.
On Wednesday, he faced court where he was denied bail. He is due to appear next month.
His girlfriend is still in hospital and receiving care after losing her child.
‘She’s physically fine… however emotionally drained from the experience, quite traumatised by the fact she’s lost her child,’ Mr Grassick said.
