Doctor in Ala. baby murder case stands by autopsy

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Six different experts disagreed with the autopsy report by Dr. Corinne Stern, who ruled that a newborn was suffocated in 2006.

Their opinion that the baby boy actually was stillborn led a judge
to dismiss the charge against the mother Thursday.

But Jay Lewis, a lawyer who represented Stern in a lawsuit, said
Friday she stands by her findings.

He said three of the state experts who now maintain the baby was
stillborn initially signed off on Stern's ruling that the was
purposely suffocated after birth by the mother, Bridget Lee.
