A new trial date is scheduled for February for the Athens man charged with shaking his four-month-old daughter to death in March 2005.
An appeals court upheld a decision to give Quentin Louis a new trial based on information about what causes symptoms associated with shaken baby syndrome.
During his jury trial in June 2006, an investigator took the stand and said Louis said his daughter, Madelyn wouldn't stop crying so he held her up and shook her. That's when she stopped breathing. It happened on March 18, 2005 at his home in Athens. She died at a hospital three days later from severe brain trauma.
In 2006, Quentin Louis was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the crime.
The trial is scheduled to begin February 10 through February 28.
