Prosecutors and Pregnancy Update


Earlier this year, I reported on the murder prosecution of Bei Bei Shuai, a woman who swallowed rat poison in a suicide attempt while pregnant. While Ms. Shuai survived and doctors delivered her fetus by C-section, the baby died a few days later.

Yesterday, the Indiana Court of Appeals paved the way for Ms. Shuai to be released on bail nearly 11 months after she was jailed. However, the court declined to dismiss the murder charge against her.
