(INDIANAPOLIS) - A judge has ruled that a medical examiner's conclusion that a newborn baby's death was caused by the rat poison her mother ate while she was pregnant is unreliable and cannot be used at the woman's murder trial.

Charles Wilson, of the Associated Press reports, a Marion County judge says the doctor who performed the autopsy didn't consider other possible causes for the brain bleeding that killed Angel Shuai, including a drug that Bei Bei Shuai was given in the hospital following her 2011 suicide attempt.

Prosecutors charged Shuai with murder and feticide in March 2011. She was released on bond last May after more than a year in jail. She faces an April 22 trial.

A spokeswoman says prosecutors are reviewing Friday's ruling.

The case has drawn international attention from reproductive rights advocates.
