CASE: Alias McLaughlin
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Sheri Greco, Homicide Unit
District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert announced today that the Honorable Marjorie Koller sentenced Alias McLaughlin to 25 years to life in prison. On January 29, 2015, a jury convicted McLaughlin of second-degree murder and assault on a child with force likely to produce great bodily injury, resulting in the death of his 21-day-old daughter Ada.
On May 10, 2013, McLaughlin became angry that baby Ada would not stop crying. Ada weighed 5 pounds and was 19 inches in length. Over the course of a few hours, McLaughlin held baby Ada upside down and shook her, threw her into the bassinet multiple times and then threw her onto the ground with such force that she sustained a 1.5 inch fracture to her skull and severe brain trauma that caused her death. Ada’s mother was also assaulted when she tried to intervene and stop the abuse of baby Ada.
McLaughlin had a prior conviction of domestic violence against Ada’s mother.
