BRODHEAD - A Brodhead father serving 40 years in prison for the death of his 2-month-old son is asking for a new trial, saying inadmissible and prejudicial evidence was allowed during his trial. A Green County jury in January 2009 convicted Casey J. Shelton, 35, of first-degree reckless homicide in the death of one of his twin sons, Christopher. Prosecutors said Christopher died Feb. 28, 2007, at the family's Decatur Township home while in Shelton's care. Evidence presented during the trial showed Christopher died from traumatic brain injuries caused by being violently shaken.
