Ellison v. Acevedo, 08-2977

District court's denial of defendant's petition for habeas relief from a conviction for the first-degree murder of a four-month-old infant and sentence to 60 years in prison is affirmed as the record does not support defendant's contention that state courts unreasonably applied clearly established federal law in rejecting his claims.
