BREAKING: Guilty of Second Degree Murder #seanphillips Verdict #babykate @fox17
A Michigan father whose infant daughter vanished five years ago was convicted of second-degree murder Friday.
Sean Phillips, 26, faces life up to life in prison for the killing of Katherine Phillips, known as Baby Kate. Its not clear when he will be sentenced.
While in prison awaiting trial, Phillips wrote a letter to Kates mom, his one-time girlfriend Ariel Courtland, describing how in a fit of anger, he yanked the infants car seat sending her flying from his car.
Thank heavens this was convicted. Hope he gets the max. He thought if he did like Casey Anthony and refused to say anything that he would get by with murdering his precious baby girl. Another lying, dirt bag lawyer.
MUSKEGON, MI Sean Michael Phillips will be sentenced early next month for second-degree murder in the disappearance of and presumed death of his daughter Katherine Phillips.
Sentencing at the Mason County courthouse has been set for 10:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 9, county prosecutor Paul Spaniola said.
