Supreme Court Rejects Appeal from Rhinelander ManSubmitted: 04/09/2013
Story By Newswatch 12 Newsteam


MADISON - A Rhinelander man in prison for the death of his young daughter took his case all the way to the state supreme court.

This morning they denied 25 year old Matthew Lonkoski's appeal.

Lonkoski is serving 12 years in prison for the death of his 10-month-old daughter Peyton.

His conviction includes recklessly causing great harm, and child neglect resulting in death.

Peyton died in May of 2009 when she ate a morphine tablet that was left within her reach.

Lonkoski knew she swallowed the pill and did not take her to the hospital.

Lonkoski asked the supreme court to thrown out a statement he gave the police.

After Lonkoski said he wanted a lawyer, he was placed under arrest.

Then he agreed to keep talking.

The supreme court said since he was not yet in custody when he asked for a lawyer, it was alright for the police to keep talking to him.
