Hyslop relief request denied

(Great Falls) A Great Falls judge ruled against David Hyslop’s request for post-conviction relief.

He was convicted in 2012 for the 2011 beating death of October “Toby” Perez.

Toby was only two years old when she died after suffering from abuse from Hyslop, who at the time was her mother’s boyfriend.

Hylsop argued that his attorney did not provide adequate counsel during the case, the judge striking down these claims as either unsubstantiated or disqualified from consideration.

Toby’s death led to the creation of the Toby’s House Crisis Nursery in Great Falls.
