(CNN) -- Remee Lee was elated when she became pregnant, but those feelings quickly turned into a nightmare that won't let go of her. Her boyfriend wasn't happy about the pregnancy, but it was Lee's dream to have a child. Until her boyfriend, John Andrew Welden, took that dream away. This week, Welden, 28, pleaded guilty to killing their unborn baby. How? He tricked Lee into taking an abortion pill, causing her to miscarry. "Every day is a nightmare for me ever since this began," Lee told Chris Cuomo on CNN's 'New Day' Tuesday. "Even hearing the guilty (plea) yesterday, it's hard to believe it, it's hard to read it and know that this actually happened to me."

Lee, 26, was in the Florida courtroom Monday, dabbing away tears as her former boyfriend accepted a plea deal that could send him to prison for at least 13 years. Follow the conversation with Chris Cuomo Welden was indicted under the rarely used federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act, a murder charge that carries a life sentence. Todd Foster, Welden's defense attorney, told reporters that the stakes of going to trial were too high. "The possibility of a mandatory life sentence, no discretion to the judge, obviously is a big factor," Foster said. "Obviously it's tragic all around from every angle, and I think that's recognized." Those who know Lee say she's still burdened by sadness. "Nothing is going to bring back what was taken from her," Lee's attorney Gil Sanchez said.

Really? For a fetus? No. His feelings matter more than a fetus. He shouldn't have tricked her, but he's justified in not wanting a child.

I don't think it goes into those details. I assume he put it in her food or told her it was some vitamin, IDK!!?

I saw this in the news -- I think he told her it was to cure an infection she had but it was actually a pill that made her miscarry
