WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — A judge has ruled that murder charges will stand against a Massachusetts woman who lived in a filthy home where the skeletal remains of three babies were found.

Erika Murray is charged in the deaths of two of three dead babies found in her Blackstone home in September 2014. Her attorney had said there’s no evidence supporting prosecutors’ claims that Murray severely neglected two of the children and caused their deaths.
