A larger than usual number of jurors is expected to be called in for a woman charged with eating rat poison, which prosecutors say resulted in the death of her unborn baby.

About 150 potential jurors, nearly three times the normal amount, will be called in the Bei Bei Shuai case.

Jurors could be asked questions on several issues concerning mental illness and depression.

Shuai, a Chinese immigrant, could be deported if convicted.

She was eight months pregnant when she ingested rat poison back in December of 2010.  The baby, named Angel, died a few days after she was born.

Jury selection is set for Sept. 3.
