He argued that a doctor’s testimony should not have been allowed.

Clark was convicted of killing his four-month-old daughter, Kyllie, in 2008.

The doctor testified that the infant died from shaken baby syndrome.

With today’s decision, Clark’s original 40-year sentence is upheld and he will remain in prison.
