Doctor Jailed for Poison Abortion Attempt

West Londoner Edward Erin, aged 44, has been jailed for 6 years after attempting to poison his pregnant lover to induce a miscarriage.

The Old Bailey heard how Bella Prowse became pregnant as a result of an affair with Doctor Erin. They got together at a Christmas party in 2007, and a month later she discovered that she was expecting. He urged her to get an abortion but she flatly refused. This is when the doctor decided to take matters into his own hands.

Miss Prowse was a secretary at the hospital where Doctor Erin worked. She became suspicious upon realising that her juice and her coffee had been tampered with; after testing, drug traces were found in both. Erin was found guilty of two charges of an attempt at administering poison.

He ground tablets up and slipped them into her coffee, but Miss Prowse noticed that the cup was already open. The following day he did the same with her orange juice and she noticed that the seal was broken. She wisely took both to the police, leading to Erin’s prosecution.

The doctor was called “a liar, a cheat and a predator” by the judge who sentenced him. Erin was originally from South Wales and is married with two children. At the time of the incident he was working in Paddington, West London, at St Mary’s Hospital. Miss Prowse was one of the three affairs he had while he was married – he was accused of living in a fantasy world. He lured women into a sexual relationship by abusing his senior position at the hospital.

The judge stated that Erin’s intent to invate Miss Prowse’s body and that was the equivalent to an act of violence. Luckily, no harm came to the child.

The doctor’s wife, Dr Lowri Erin claimed to be aware of his affairs and stood by him throughout the trial. She has defended him despite all of the revelations heard about the case.

Dr Erin has been sentenced to six years for each count; Miss Prowse was present at the court for the sentencing.

Miss Prowse gave birth to a healthy baby boy in September 2008 and named him Ernie.

Had doctor Erin chosen to spend time with beautiful London Escorts instead of embarking on illicit affairs, he could have avoided this horrible situation and his jail sentence!
