Kristen - Chad. What kind of a name is Chad

I love her.



Meanwhile, I don't want to get into an abortion debate, but can you actually be arrested for murder of an unborn child? They should have made it assault or something.

Jennifer has been arrested twice this year.
Depends on the state and their individual laws. In California you can now be charged for the murder of an unborn fetus (see: Laci Peterson case) if the fetus was viable outside of the womb at the time of death. So, a full-term baby would definitely fall under that (as opposed to, say, someone miscarrying in their first trimester). It wasn't always the case in California (see: Sharon Tate case, where the baby's death was not included in the murder charges). If, in fictitious Salem, the police are operating under the theory that Nicole was pushed, then to me it makes sense they'd charge as murder (leaving aside any abortion-related debate).
