Capital murder charge dismissed

CARROLLTON, Ala. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a capital murder charge that was brought against a west Alabama woman in her newborn baby's death.

Defense attorneys for 34-year-old Bridget Lee showed the judge Thursday that the original autopsy was botched.

Later autopsies by state examiners found the baby was stillborn.
