INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Lawyers for a Chinese immigrant whose premature baby died after the pregnant woman tried to kill herself by eating rat poison are asking an Indianapolis judge to bar the infant's autopsy photographs from her murder trial.
Bei Bei Shuai's attorneys said in documents filed Friday that the photos are overly gory and inflammatory.
They say a medical examiner from Delaware who reviewed the photographs called them "appallingly unprofessional."
Shuai's lawyers also renewed their call for the judge to dismiss murder charges against her. That motion comes a few weeks after Judge Sheila Carlisle barred key testimony from Shuai's trial.
Prosecutors said this week they wouldn't appeal that ruling.
Shuai attempted suicide by eating rat poison in December 2010, when she was eight months pregnant.
