Mile High Murder, No. 43: Benjamin Koller charged with shaking his baby to death

Another day, another vile shaken-baby story. Just yesterday, we told you about Denver's Stephen Dailey, who's facing an attempted-murder beef related to the grave injuries suffered by his two-month-old son. Now, a first-degree murder accusation has been leveled against Boulder's Benjamin Koller, who reportedly admits to having shaken, bit and even dropped his infant son in an unfathomably stupid attempt to stop a crying jag. The boy died on October 5, leading to a serious (and wholly appropriate) escalation of charges. Look below to see information about the case, including court appearances to date, and one looming in December.
