The father on trial for killing a Juneau infant in August 2010 has been found not guilty of second-degree murder, but guilty of manslaughter.
The six-man, six-woman jury returned their verdict in the case against David J. Paul, 24, after deliberating for about 12 to 15 hours over a three day span. The verdict was announced at noon Monday in Juneau Superior Court.
Paul, who was accused of causing the death of his girlfriend’s 4-month-old baby Rian Jambi Orr, will be sentenced on September 5. He could be facing a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
