(continued from page one) Monday, Nov. 1 and wrapped up on Nov. 2. Defense witnesses said the doctors and others reacted too quickly in label- ing the baby's injuries the result of non- accidental trauma and failed to examine other possibilities, including a physical deformity from premature birth they said could have led to a fatal heart attack on Oct. 26. Raffety told in- vestigators and others the baby spit up after his mother had left and then began choking on some of the material he had spit up and couldn't breathe. He said he tried to clear Avory's air- ways and also attempted CPR, which was unsuccessful, before Larson re- turned and they rushed the baby to the nearby hospital. Raffety was represented by Public Defender Joe Parise and court-ap- pointed attorney John Holbrook of Willmar. Assistant Minnesota Attorney Gen- eral William Klumpp and Big Stone County Attorney Bill Watson prose- cuted the case. Seibel ordered a pre-sentence inves- tigation and set a sentencing hearing for Dec. 21 in Ortonville. Watson said Minnesota sentencing guidelines for a second-degree murder conviction call for a prison term of 128 months to 180 months, although, be- cause the judge found there were ag- gravating factors - the age of the victim and the role of responsibility held by the defendant - he could go outside those guidelines. Raffety remains in custody in the Kandiyohi County Jail in Willmar.
