Man facing charges in death of 4-month-old son
The defense team for Damien Marsden took its first steps at putting a dent in the prosecution’s case Tuesday, forwarding its own theory for the death of Marsden’s son bolstered by testimony from a forensic pathologist. Jurors heard emotional testimony from Tammy Klein, the grandmother of Marsden’s son, who said an incident when Rylin Marsden was in her care may have contributed to his death.
