Pregnant US woman to remain in jail 

A FLORIDA  court has denied the petition of a pregnant murder suspect who sought release from prison on the grounds her unborn child was innocent of the charges and therefore being held unlawfully.

In a ruling obtained by AFP yesterday, Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal dismissed without prejudice the petition filed on behalf of Natalia Harrell’s foetus, saying there were still questions that needed to be addressed in a lower court but issuing no ruling on whether the case had legal merit.
