Guilty Verdict in Fatal Child Abuse

Guilty Verdict in Fatal Child Abuse

Jury deliberations began late Tuesday morning after prosecutors and the defense presented their closing arguments in the trial of Sarah Cullen.  She had been charged with the death of four-month old Cash Bell. 

During the trial,  Cullen claimed the infant's fatal injuries could have come from a fall off a swing,  bumping his head on a door,  or at the bottom of a flight of stairs.  The prosecution claimed evidence showed abuse to be the cause of the injuries.

Jurors returned their verdict shortly before 4 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.  Cullen will remain in jail without bail until her May 19th sentencing date.
