Natalia Harrell Wiki – Bio
Natalia Harrell, 24, a pregnant Florida woman accused of fatally shooting a mother of three in an Uber last year, argues that she will be let out of jail because her unborn child has committed no crime.
In an unusual legal argument, lawyers for 24-year-old Natalia filed a motion on behalf of her unborn child, stating that she should not be behind bars without being charged with a crime. The State has placed the unborn child in such an inherently dangerous environment by placing the unborn child in close proximity to violent criminal offenders,” the filing states. Harrell’s son, she argues, is receiving inadequate prenatal care and is illegally locked up.

Inmate’s Unborn Baby Seeks Release From Jail
The case holds that the fetus should be released pending trial, which would necessarily get Harrell, who faces second-degree murder, out of jail. A new video released last week showed the moment she killed the mother of three, Yvette Borcela, inside an Uber she was riding with five other people after a night out in Miami last July. Harrell’s attorney, William Norris, claims her client shot Borcela, 28, because she lunged at her during the argument and feared for the safety of her baby.
Harrell was with a group of men at a South Beach nightclub that she asked if they knew anyone who wanted to join her group. Borcela was invited, but soon irritated Harrell after she began “drinking and dancing” excessively. At one point, she asked one of her friends to “control her girl.”
Video shows the couple began arguing in the backseat of an Uber after the group left the nightclub around 2 a.m. Harrell climbed into the center row of the vehicle at one point as the Uber driver watched the chaos in her rearview mirror. At one point, Borcela appears to catch up with Harrell, who shoots him once in the stomach. The Uber driver stopped before everyone got out of the vehicle except Borcela. She was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. Miami-Dade corrections officials are expected to respond to the filing this week.
