Oklahoma man's murder conviction upheld in death of son


November 22, 2019

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The first-degree murder conviction and life sentence of a 32-year-old eastern Oklahoma man for the death of his 22-month-old son has been upheld.

The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals on Thursday rejected appeals by William Hunter Magness of Okemah that included insufficient evidence, improper testimony, prosecutorial misconduct and ineffective assistance of counsel.

Magness' attorney did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

Prosecutors say the boy, identified only as T.G., suffered blunt force trauma to the head that led to his death in November 2013.
