A Colorado man was convicted of killing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son over four years ago.
A jury deliberated for five hours on March 3 before finding John Affourtit, 37, guilty of first-degree murder of a victim under 12, child abuse causing death, and reckless endangerment, KCNC-TV reported.
The child, who was unresponsive and not breathing, appeared to be abused and died from his injuries.
An autopsy showed the victim's cause of death was blunt-force trauma, and Affourtit was arrested.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 6.
