Woman Charged with Feticide May Be Released on Bond

5/11/2012

A woman who ate rat poison while she was pregnant may be released from jail on bond, though she will still be charged with murder and feticide.

Listen:

The Indiana Supreme Court unanimously ruled that the charges against 34-year-old Chinese immigrant Bei Bei Shuai should stand, but the ruling also allows a lower court to set bond. Shuai's attorneys moved to have the charges dismissed, saying she was trying to kill herself and not her unborn child when she ate rat poison in December 2010.

Shuai's baby died three days after being born.
