Barnes found guilty in death of 15-month-old

A jury found 29-year-old Kwasi Barnes guilty of Battery Resulting in Death of a Child, a Class A felony.

Barnes was being tried for beating a 15-month-old to death.

Police were called to the Beacon Heights Apartment Complex in October 2005 when a small child was found bleeding from the ear.

The baby died a short time later at the hospital.

A neurosurgeon told police the toddler suffered a severe blow to the head.

Barnes faces twenty to fifty years in prison. He will be sentenced on September 11th.
