Couple Charged in Attempted Firebomb of Louisiana Abortion Clinic

Patricia Hughes, 24, and Jeremy Dunahoe, 18, were charged on Saturday with the attempted bombing of the Hope Medical Group for Women in Shreveport, Louisiana. Hughes was charged with the manufacture and possession of a delayed incendiary device, and Dunahoe was charged as an accessory to the December 12 attempted firebomb of the women’s health clinic, according to the Shreveport Times.

Security cameras show a female throwing the Molotov cocktail at the clinic around 10:45 p.m. on December 12, as well as a car that was later found parked behind the couple’s residence, according to the Shreveport Times. However, the bomb did not damage the clinic or interrupt services. Both Hughes and Dunahoe have admitted to the attempted firebombing but neither have given an explanation, according to KTBSNews.com.
