Attempted fetal homicide suspect back in court


The defense team for a man accused of attempting to kill an unborn child accuse state prosecutors of "Judge shopping".
Alfredo Vargas, 35, is charged with attempted fetal homicide or an alternative charge of procurement of abortion.

Previous charges against Vargas were dropped year when a Judge rejected a state herbologist witness.
Now defense attorneys want to bar state toxicology witnesses from taking the stand.

Judge Janine Kern, newly assigned to the case, ruled Monday that the court will not be bound by rulings made by a previous Judge.
The testimony of three state experts and two witnesses will be reviewed in court on February 7th.
