In Louisiana, Magistrate finds probable cause to hold West Bank man accused of killing 3-month-old daughter | Shaken Baby Syndrome

A West Bank man has reportedly been jailed in the death of his 3-month-old daughter, who died six weeks ago from what authorities say was "shaken baby syndrome." Raymond Riego, 39, is in the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna in lieu of a $1.5 million bond, reportedly on charges of second-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile in the death of the child who authorities have identified only by her initials, M.H.

An obituary published Feb. 5 identified the child as Madison Nicole Hughes, who died Jan. 30. 
The incident happened reportedly Jan. 26-27, inside a home in Marrero, a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office detective said. Property records show the baby's maternal family resides there, as did Riego, a former Buras resident.
Riego reportedly admitted he shook the baby, but only after the autopsy revealed the infant died from being shaken, Detective Travis Eserman testified Tuesday during a probable cause hearing in the 24th Judicial District Court.
