 June 30, 2011 WBNS-10TV

ZANESVILLE, Ohio — A man was convicted Wednesday in the death of his 5-month-old son.

Dale Wright faces a possible sentence of up to 15 years in prison, although no sentencing date was immediately set.
Authorities in Muskingum County determined that Wright's son, Dash, died from blunt force trauma consistent with shaken baby syndrome. They said the boy had suffered a skull fracture and retinal tears,
10TV's Kevin Landers reported.
The child was found unresponsive last August while in Wright's care.
Wright's defense attorneys argued that the boy's injuries could have been the result of an accident.
They said they planned to appeal the guilty verdict.
