In Mississippi, Jeffrey Havard convicted of capital murder in baby's death | Shaken Baby Syndrome

The State Supreme Court has reportedly unanimously denied an appeal from death row inmate Jeffrey Havard, moving him one step closer to execution.

Justices last week reportedly rejected the 33-year-old inmate's appeal, writing, "There is no merit to Havard's claim that newly discovered evidence exists that supports his innocence. This issue is procedurally barred by time."

On Feb. 21, 2002, 6-month-old Chloe Britt reportedly died, and prosecutors say Havard reportedly sexually abused and killed her. Havard was convicted of capital murder. He admits accidentally dropping her but denies sexually abusing and killing her.

  1. One would assume that Chloe`s family would want her to rest peacefully. It has been proven that she did not die from SBS. She is not a victim of any sexual abuse either. As much as Mr. Havard deserves his freedom for being wrongfully convicted, little Chloe deserves the truth be recognized.
