DALLAS - One of several people accused of jumping on a pregnant teenís belly to force an abortion after she was raped was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in prison.

A Dallas County jury found Lonnell McDonald guilty on Friday. The 28-year-old was sentenced to 10 years in prison for aggravated assault, but is still facing a pending charge for conspiracy to commit capital murder.

Police said Lonnell McDonald, along with 27-year-old Cecilia McDonald, 28-year-old Cedric Jones and 46-year-old Sharon Jones, took matters into their own hands.

Sharon Jones allegedly gave the girl emergency contraception pills. When that didnít work, the affidavit states Cecilia McDonald held the girlís arms while Lonnell McDonald sat on her pregnant belly and bounced. Cedric Jones then came over to the house and proceeded to kick and punch the girl repeatedly.

The teen was about eight months pregnant at the time and delivered a stillborn baby a few hours later. She was never given any medical attention.

The affidavit also states the suspects tried to dispose of the babyís body on a charcoal grill. When that didnít work, Sharon Jones paid Cedric Jones $25 to stash them in an unknown location.

Child Protective Services removed seven children from the home after police got involved. The victim is now 17 years old and reportedly lives with a foster family.

Her brother, 23-year-old Robert Cayald, was arrested for raping her.
