A 19-yar-old Pennsylvania man is being charged with homicide and a slew of other charges after intentionally slamming his car into a guardrail at 100 mph, and then smothering his pregnant girlfriend to death by sitting on her face.

The man allegedly snapped after finding out that his 17-year-old girlfriend was pregnant.

Benjamin Daniel Klinger, 19, of Elizabethtown, faces charges for the December 4th death of Sammi Heller on an interstate near Manheim.

“At first glance, this appeared to be simply another tragic vehicle accident,” Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman told the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era. “However, the police worked hand-in-hand with our forensic experts and saw this was far more complicated, sinister and certainly criminal.”

The bizarre and tragic incident unfolded at around 2 AM on Route 283 in Ralpho Township when police say Klinger rammed his Toyota sedan into a guardrail, and then proceeded to smother his pregnant girlfriend.

Heller allegedly told a friend that Klinger previously tried to scare her while driving and that he had threatened to kill them both in a crash.

It is said that Klinger had a history of being violent toward his girlfriend, as he would push her into walls and once pushed her down a set of stairs.

“Klinger was observed by the officers to be what appeared as ‘slipping in and out of consciousness,’ because he would close his eyes for several seconds, moan, and then reopen his eyes while continuing to be positioned on top of the victim’s head and torso while the victim was face down,” police wrote in a report of the incident.

Based on medical records, investigators later concluded Klinger was pretending to be unconscious.

An autopsy performed by Dr. Wayne Ross on Heller’s body has revealed that the teen died from multiple injuries and asphyxiation.

Detectives recovered marijuana, cash, a digital scale, a pipe, pills and a black air pistol from the wreckage.

Klinger was also charged with aggravated assault, drug offenses and driving violations, along with simple assault charges for allegedly running over Heller’s foot in May.
