Court rejects appeal of Maryland man convicted of killing infant son

April 14, 2018, Annapolis, MD — A Maryland court has rejected the appeal of a man convicted of killing his 3-month-old son in 2001 after secretly taking out a $750,000 life insurance policy on the child.

Moussa Sissoko argued that a judge presiding over his retrial wrongly denied his motion to exclude expert medical testimony that his son, Shane, suffered fatal injuries from abusive head trauma, or shaken-baby syndrome.

The Court of Special Appeals rejected Sissoko’s claim this month. It also found there was sufficient evidence to convict Sissoko of first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.
