SBS: Wisconsin: Quentin Louis to get new trial

Mar 16, 2011
The Athens man sentenced to 20 years behind bars for killing his 4-month old daughter by shaking her will get a new trial.
An appeals court upheld a Marathon County judge's decision to retry the case of 29-year-old Quentin Louis.
Louis admitted to investigators he shook the girl before her death in 2005. But because of new debate in the medical community over what causes symptoms that are associated with shaken baby syndrome, a new trial was ordered.
That way, a new jury will get to hear medical evidence that challenges shaken baby syndrome.
