SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) _ A jury has been selected for the trial of a northern Indiana woman charged in the death of her baby whose body was found in a restaurant trash bin.
Seven men and seven women was chosen Thursday to serve as the 12 jurors and two alternates in Purvi Patel's trial on charges of feticide and neglect of a dependent resulting in death.
Patel was seven months pregnant when authorities allege that she took drugs to end her pregnancy, but the baby was born alive.
The infant's body was found outside a Mishawaka restaurant in July 2013.
Court documents say Patel told doctors the baby was stillborn, but a pathologist ruled the infant was born alive.
