Trial in Wisconsin fetal-abduction case nears an end

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Closing arguments could come soon in the trial of the Milwaukee woman accused of killing a pregnant woman last year and trying to steal her unborn baby.

Annette Morales-Rodriguez faces two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the deaths of the woman and her baby. Testimony began Tuesday, and the judge predicts the case could go to the jury as early as Thursday.

Prosecutors played a video for jurors Wednesday in which the suspect told detectives she attacked the victim with a bat and strangled her. Morales-Rodriguez told police she was sorry for hurting the woman and said she didn't mean for the baby to die.

The prosecution is expected to wrap up its case Thursday morning. The defense has declined to say whether Morales-Rodriguez will testify.
