Sheboygan Man Won't Testify In Reckless Homicide Case

by

 

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - The Sheboygan man on trial for the death of his infant son will not testify in his own defense.  The prosecution wrapped up its case just before noon on Wednesday and the defense spent part of the afternoon presenting evidence to suggest that you cannot kill a baby just by shaking it.  A pediatrician took the stand Wednesday afternoon and testified that he has done numerous studies on infant brain injuries, and shaking a baby simply is not enough to cause the death of a child.  Goldston says he dropped his one month old son Leander off a couch while reaching for a television remote in March of 2010.  The child was rushed to the hospital where he later died from his injuries.  Doctors from Children’s Hospital say that the injuries the child sustained were far greater than a simple fall from couch level, as Goldston claimed.  The trial is expected to wrap up by Friday, and if convicted on this homicide charge, Goldston could spend up to 66 years in prison.
