CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — A jury deliberated for less than an hour Thursday before convicting a West Virginia woman charged in the death of her 5-year-old grandson.

The Exponent Telegram reported that 49-year-old Michelle Lynn Boggs of Lost Creek wept at the verdict finding her guilty of knowingly allowing death of a child by parent, guardian or custodian by child abuse.

She is the second person convicted in the 2020 death of Keaton Michael Elliott Boggs.

The boy died after suffering head trauma, numerous bruises and a laceration on his genital region.
