Chinese immigrant charged in baby's rat poison death pleads guilty to misdemeanor in plea deal

A Chinese immigrant charged with killing her child by eating rat poison while she was pregnant has pleaded guilty to criminal recklessness in an Indianapolis court as part of a deal reached with prosecutors.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that 36-year-old Bei Bei Shuai (bay bay shway) pleaded guilty Friday to the misdemeanor and was sentenced to time served, which was 178 days. Murder and feticide charges were dropped.

Curry says he decided to accept the lesser charge because a number of evidentiary rulings by the court had hurt the prosecution's case. He says he decided to accept the lesser charge rather than to appeal those decisions.

A message was left at the office of Shuai's attorney, Linda Pence, seeking comment.
