SALINA, Kansas (AP) – Saline County jurors found a man guilty of felony murder and child abuse in the death of his girlfriend’s 18-month-old daughter.

The verdict was returned Thursday against Troy L. Love II for the April 2012 death of Bre’Elle Jefferson. He was found not guilty of a second count of child abuse for injuries the girl suffered before she was fatally injured.

Love will be sentenced June 30.

Love faces a life sentence with a minimum of 20 years served before becoming eligible for parole on the murder charge.
