ALBANY, New York — The conviction and sentence has been upheld for a man who received a 25 years to life imprisonment sentence for beating his 2-year-old niece to death while she was staying at his Hudson Valley home.

The Daily Freeman of Kingston reports (http://bit.ly/1OKbMWd ) the Albany court ruled on Thursday that evidence against Joseph Rodriguez sufficiently convicted him, including two items of his blood-stained clothing had the victim's DNA on them.

Rodriguez had also said his verdict should be reversed because his motion to disclose polygraph data from his wife's testimony was denied. The court rejected that too.

Asia Perez was found bludgeoned to death in 2012 behind Joseph and Dalia Rodriguez's New Paltz home. Prosecutors say Joseph Rodriguez killed her after she wet her diaper.
