Ind. woman charged in baby's death might get out of jail

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

A Marion County judge is set to hold a bond hearing Friday for 35-year-old Bei Bei Shuai (BAY BAY SHWAY). She's been in jail since being charged in March 2011.

Judge Sheila Carlisle refused to allow Shuai to be released from jail last June, but the state appeals court 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 Indiana murder cases.

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