Ind. Courts - Bei Bei Shuai rejects plea offer

Charles Wilson of the AP reports this afternoon:

A Chinese immigrant who Indiana prosecutors say ate rat poison while eight months pregnant has rejected a plea agreement that would have negated a murder charge in her newborn baby's death.

Authorities say Bei Bei Shuai (Bay Bay Shway) was in court Friday and turned down prosecutors' offer to plead guilty to a lesser charge of attempted feticide. Had she accepted the deal, Shuai could have faced six to 20 years in prison or a suspended sentence.

Here is a long list of earlier ILB entries on the case.
