45-year-old Manish Patel was sentenced Tuesday for spiking his pregnant girlfriend's drink with an abortion-inducing drug.

The woman never drank the spiked beverage, but miscarried weeks later. Patel was sentenced in Outagamie County to 22 years behind bars and four-years extended supervision.

Patel had been on the run since he was charged in 2007. He was finally arrested in New York nine years later and brought back to Outagamie County to face the charges against him.
