Placeholder Image
MONROE - A former Brodhead man convicted of killing his 2-month-old child in 2007 is seeking a re-trial in light of new medical discoveries that he claims prove his innocence. Casey Shelton, 41, was sentenced in 2009 to 40 years in prison and an additional 10 years of extended supervision after a jury found him guilty of a Class B felony charge of first-degree reckless homicide. Shelton was determined to have caused the death of his 2-month old son on Feb. 28, 2007.
