Jurors returning from 90-minute lunch break seem jovial and friendly with each other. No signs of stress. More @WOODTV

Dour? Are they frustrated? Saddened with verdict of guilty? Unable to reach unanimous verdict? I felt certain there would be a verdict today. :(

I think he would have been found Guilty of 1st Degree if they hadn't removed it, imo

Dad guilty of murder in ‘Baby Kate’ disappearance

The Associated Press 9:03 p.m. EDT October 14, 2016

Ludington, Mich. — A jury convicted a northern Michigan man of second-degree murder Friday evening in connection with the disappearance of his 4-month-old daughter.

The jury deliberated about 22 hours before finding Sean Phillips guilty of killing Katherine Phillips, known as “Baby Kate.” The girl disappeared five years ago in the Ludington area about 80 miles northwest of Grand Rapids, but her body has never been found.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette in a Friday statement said the conviction followed a joint prosecution and multi-jurisdictional investigation by local, state and federal authorities.

“Today’s conviction is a measure of justice for a child who will never grow up and a family that has been ripped apart by her murder,” Schuette said...

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.” It’s not clear when he will be sentenced.
While in prison awaiting trial, Phillips wrote a letter to Kate’s mom, his one-time girlfriend Ariel Courtland, describing how in a fit of anger, he yanked the infant’s 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.
