Two days ago, Los Angeles Police homicide detectives arrested Joshua Woodward, who teamed up with celebrity chef Govind Armstrong to bring their West Coast food offerings to South Beach with Table 8 and 8 oz. Burger Bar. The cops charged Woodward with the murder of his unborn child.

According to a LAPD press release, investigators on October 19 completed an injury report to "capture the suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage." The release notes the fetus was 13 weeks old when it died.

The rest of the release states:

Joshua Woodward is believed to have been the biological father of the baby. Wilshire Area Homicide investigators established probable cause to arrest Woodward in connection with the death of the unborn baby.
His bail has been set at $2 million. The charges were to be presented to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office today. The LAPD would not release the names of the mother or what information it had to establish probable cause.

Shortly after Table 8 filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy, Woodward was quoted in a Miami Herald article that he would reopen the restaurant on Alton Road with cheaper prices. He is a partner in a company that owns the original 8 oz. location on Melrose Ave in L.A., as well as Table 8 in New York City. According to Maile Rodriguez, publicist for the South Beach 8 oz., Woodward licensed the name to Eric Fried, the Alton Road burger joint's sole owner.

"Josh helped launch the Miami location," Rodriguez says. "But he does not have a financial relationship and he is not responsible for the day-to-day operation."
