    GUILDHALL — A Vermont man convicted of killing a baby 20 years ago has been charged with burglary after police say DNA linked him to a blood-spattered pamphlet at the crime scene.

    Shawn Boyd, 43, pleaded not guilty to felony burglary and unlawful mischief in Essex Superior Court on Thursday and is being held on $10,000 bail.

    Police say Boyd smashed the front door of the Moose Look Cafe in Concord last Christmas Eve and stole $7 from the cash register.

    Prosecutors are charging Boyd as a habitual offender because he has three prior felony convictions, including one for manslaughter.

    Police say Boyd also goes by Shawn Ely and was sent to prison in 1998 after being convicted of beating to death a 2-year-old boy.
