Medical Records, Journal Writings Could Be Inadmissible at Woman's Murder Trial

Amanda Hein, 27, of Allentown, is accused of murdering her newborn baby inside a restaurant bathroom in Lower Saucon Township.

The legal team representing an Allentown woman accused of murdering her newborn baby inside a Lower Saucon Township restaurant restroom in August has filed a motion in an attempt to reclassify evidence seized as part of the township police's investigation inadmissible at trial, the Express-Times reported last week.

According to an article published by the newspaper, Northampton County Chief Public Defender Michael Corriere argued in the motion that cellphone information and journal writings by Amanda Hein, 27, should be excluded as evidence at trial because they were allegedly seized without a warrant, and that her medical records should be deemed inadmissible because their seizure allegedly violated her right to privacy.
