Child killer asks to withdraw guilty plea

Lawton_A Lawton man who pleaded guilty eleven years ago to killing a baby wants to withdraw his plea. 

Patrick Hill was charged with murder back in 2002 after the death of his girlfriend's 10-month-old son.  Hill later pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter, and was sentenced to life in prison. Investigators originally believed the child was a victim of shaken baby syndrome, but then, they found other injuries on his head. Hill ultimately admitted he had tossed the child on the couch after shaking him in an effort to stop the baby from crying. 

No word on when the judge will rule on Hill's appeal.
