A Marion County judge dealt a blow to the prosecution in the controversial murder case against Bei Bei Shuai.

The judge ruled the conclusion that newborn Angel Shuai died as a result of her mother injesting rat poision cannot be used in court.

The judge said the pathologist who performed an autoposy on the infant didn’t consider other potential reasons for the brain bleeding that led to the newborn’s death.

Bei Bei Shuai’s attorneys have argued Shuai, who has no criminal history, was attempting suicide when she consumed the poison in December 2010.  They said prosecuting Shuai based on the outcome of her pregnancy is unconstitutional and the baby’s death did not result from murder.

Bei Bei Shuai appealed to the Indiana Supreme Court to have murder and attempted feticide charges dropped.  However, the court denied the appeal in May 2012.

She was granted a $50,000 bond and was released from prison that same month. Bei Bei Shuai surrendered her passport, was fitted with a GPS monitoring system and has agreed not to leave the state as a part of her release.

Her trial has been set for April 22.

    you know as i don't agree with what she did trying to kill her self resulting in a babys death how can they charge her for murder when there are abortion doctors out there that are murdering defenseless babies and the state doesn't do anything about them killing babies so to me that is a double standard allowing doctors to go around killing babies and then they charge this woman with murder charges of an unborn fetus heck why doesn't the state go after every single one that has an abortion and charge them with murder charges too. that makes just about as much sense as this case. heck on top of that why don't they just charge the rat poisen companies that made the stuff. the point i am trying to make is that people make mistakes this woman shouldn't have to lose her life over this one transgression.

        i am glad somebody agrees with me. and i say f the liberals they can kiss my a. if they would do their jobs instead of worrying about how much taxes they are getting from the doctors this country would be a better place.

    WOW REALLY! She killed her baby by eating rat poison maybe because she couldn't afford a $300-$500 abortion. Its the same damn thing ppl. If she get charged then everyone that walked inside an abortion clinic should be charged. She just did hers for free.
