Woman charged in baby deaths seeks to prove from their house and thrown

WORCESTER, Mass. – The lawyer for a Massachusetts woman that murder charges after the bodies of three babies were found in her squalid home has asked a judge to throw out evidence police found during a search of the house.

Erika Murray is charged in the death of two of the three dead babies found in her Blackstone home in September 2014.

The Telegram & Gazette (http://bit.ly/2hWsh9t ) reports that her lawyer, Keith Halpern, told a judge Wednesday that a police search of the home exceeded the scope of the search warrant, which he called “vague, overbroad and fatally damaged.”

The plaintiffs responded that given the “bizarre and unusual” facts of the case, the search was justified.

The judge did not immediately rule.

Murray is being held without bail after pleading not guilty.
