Part One of The Current
It's Thursday, July 5th.
Bev Oda is stepping down from politics.
Immediately following her announcement, government spending dropped in half.
This is The Current.
Bei Bei Shuai
We began this part with a clip of Bei Bei Shuai speaking after her release from jail. She is still awaiting trial for the charge of murdering her baby. Originally from Shanghai, she was living in Indiana when she tried to end her life following a love affair gone wrong. Friends learned she had ingested rat poison and rushed her to hospital. She survived... but had to have an emergency C-section in her 33rd week of pregnancy, delivering a baby which survived only a few days.
For more on this story we heard from Linda Pence. She is Bei Bei Shuai's lawyer. And she was in Indianapolis, Indiana.
We also spoke with Terry Curry. He is the Marion County Prosecutor.
This segment was produced by The Current's Liz Hoath.
