STEVENS POINT, WI (WTAQ) - A jury in Stevens Point has found a man guilty of causing the death of his girlfriend's two-year-old son.
The jurors deliberated about six hours Thursday and Friday morning before convicting 28-year-old Reymundo Perez on both charges against him -- reckless homicide and felony child abuse.
Perez was accused of slamming young Felix Villa-Martinez to the ground, while he was babysitting the toddler in October of 2011.
A defense lawyer claimed that the boy's mother had actually caused the fatal injuries at another time.
A sentencing date has not been set. That could happen on Monday, when all parties plan to take part in a scheduling conference.
