TAMPA, Fla. – A Florida agency has revoked the license of a doctor accused of medical malpractice in a botched abortion in which authorities say a live baby was placed in the trash.

The Florida Board of Medicine on Friday found Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacque Renelique (ren-uh-LEEK') guilty of medical malpractice and delegating responsibility to unlicensed personnel.

An administrative complaint said Renelique was scheduled to perform an abortion on a teenager who was 23 weeks pregnant.

According to the complaint, Sycloria Williams gave birth at a Hialeah clinic after waiting hours for Renelique to arrive. A clinic owner placed the baby in the trash. Police recovered the decomposing remains a week later.

Renelique and his attorney declined to comment after the hearing.
