Posted on Jan 27, 2013
For almost five years, Li Hangbin, 28, has reportedly been jailed on Rikers Island, awaiting trial in the 2007 death of his 2-month-old daughter Annie.
Prosecutors say Annie reportedly died from shaken-baby syndrome after being violently beaten and shaken by Mr. Li. But on Wednesday, as Mr. Li’s trial began in State Supreme Court in Queens, his lawyer, Cedric Ashley, grabbed his client’s left hand and held it aloft for jurors to see.
