MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- An upcoming case will test an Alabama law that allows a person suspected of killing a pregnant woman to be charged with two murders if the fetus also dies. Jesse Phillips is charged with capital murder in the 2009 shooting death of his pregnant wife. Phillips was charged based on a law adopted in 2006 that allows a person to be charged with capital murder in the death of a fetus.
