Indianapolis Woman Charged In Baby's Death Might Leave Jail

Last updated on Friday, May 18, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - An Indianapolis woman charged with murder and feticide for eating rat poison while pregnant could soon be released from jail.

The Associated Press reports Marion County Superior Court Judge Sheila Carlisle was set to hold a bond hearing in Indianapolis today in for 35-year-old Bei Bei Shuai. She's been in jail since being charged in March 2011.

Carlisle refused to allow Shuai to be released from jail last June, but the Indiana Court of Appeals later ordered her to set bond for the Chinese immigrant. The Indiana Supreme Court last week allowed the appeals court ruling to stand. However, both higher courts declined to dismiss the charges against Shuai.

Bond is extremely rare in murder cases.

The case has drawn attention from national medical and women's rights groups.
