Pathologist provides more definitive timetable in Schlitter murder trial

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

More medical experts have taken the stand in a trial involving the death of a Cedar Rapids toddler.

Zyriah Schlitter is charged with first degree murder and child neglect after his 18 month old daughter Kamryn died from head trauma in 2010.

Schlitter's ex-girlfriend Amy Parmer faces the same charges and is scheduled to go on trial in January.

Tuesday, a host of medical experts were marched up to the stand all testifying again that they believed Kamryn's death was no accident.

For the first time, a more concrete timetable was provided for when Kamryn's injuries may have been inflicted.

The defense argues Schlitter was not with Kamryn when she sustained her final injuries on March 21, 2010.

Schlitter attended a church class on that evening just hours before Parmer dialed 9-1-1 and Kamryn was taken to the hospital.

University of Iowa neuropathologist Gary Baumbach testified that an examination of a sample brain tissue suggests the injuries were inflicted on Kamryn earlier in the day, meaning Schlitter could have been with her when the injuries were inflicted.

Dr. Baumbach believes the injuries happened in a range of 12-24 hours before the sample was collected.

All other doctors to testify were only able to provide a general timeline, saying Kamryn's injuries were sustained some time between minutes and 24 hours before Parmer called 9-1-1.
