Neuropathologist is "star witness" in high-profile child death case


Dr. Mark Cohen (pictured), a well-known neuropathologist and friend who is frequently featured on this blog, made the news recently as a defense witness in a high-profile child abuse case going on in Colorado. This link will bring you to a report on the case by the local CBS television affiliate. The report states that "[t]he defense called its star witness to the stand Wednesday morning. Mark Cohen, a high profile neuropathologist, says Jason died from a rare condition called 'metabolic disease,' and not from child abuse." You can see a video of Dr. Cohen's testimony on the site as well.

I should note that I was unable to get the video to work when I went to the site. I hope others have better luck.
