GUILTY VERDICT: Jury Says Father Killed Baby
A jury has convicted a 28-year-old Iowa Falls man of killing his baby daughter.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports Trevor Smith was found guilty of first-degree murder and child endangerment Thursday.
Police found the baby unresponsive at a Waterloo home in September of 2012. Smith told police he was giving her a bottle when she started struggling to breath.
Doctors say the baby’s brain was bleeding and the injury was consistent with trauma.
The child was removed from life support about a week later and died.
