Grygla, Minn., man facing charges in death of 4-month-old son
The prosecution rested its case Monday in the murder trial of Damien Marsden following testimony from an expert witness that Marsden’s son did not die from injuries he suffered from falling off a bed. Dr. Arne Graff also testified that 4-month-old Rylin Marsden died of injuries following a non-accidental head trauma, which likely occurred just before he started showing symptoms on the afternoon of Aug. 2, 2009. Damien Marsden, 33, of Grygla, Minn., is facing three counts of second-degree murder in state District Court in his son’s death.
