Jury Selection Resumes in Wis. Fetal Abduction Case
Jury selection has resumed in the case of a Milwaukee woman accused of killing a young mother by cutting her full-term fetus from her womb.
Prospective jurors are being asked how familiar they are with the case. Several say they've heard details through media coverage but said Tuesday they would do their best to remain impartial.
Annette Morales-Rodriguez is charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in last year's deaths of a 23-year-old woman and her unborn son. She has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
Jury selection began Monday and continued Tuesday morning. Opening statements and witness testimony are expected to begin later Tuesday.
Prosecutors say Morales-Rodriguez planned to raise the unborn child as her own. The baby died after it was sliced out of the mother's womb.
