WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — The attorney for a Massachusetts woman charged in the deaths of two babies is seeking to throw out physical evidence and statements obtained as a result of two searches at her home.
Authorities found the skeletal remains two years ago in Erika Murray’s squalid Blackstone home. Murray has pleaded not guilty to several charges, including murder.
The MetroWest Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/2g6P6Wa ) that attorney Keith Halpern says in his motion that two searches were unlawfully conducted.
Halpern says one search warrant was “vague, overbroad and fatally defective” and a second was “the illegal fruit of the initial invalid search.”

He says authorities never established probable cause to search Murray’s property for evidence.
A fetus was also found in the home, but Murray wasn’t charged in that death.
