Littleton Jackson, who last year beat his 11-month-old daughter to death, was convicted Thursday of first-degree intentional homicide.
The baby, Millie Smith, suffered horrific injuries.
Jackson, who told police he was drunk when he attacked Millie on Sept. 25, bit the child’s face and pummeled her. When Millie’s mother returned to the home she shared with Jackson, she found Millie on the floor, bruised, naked, with a broken rib, a swollen face and rectal bleeding.
She also found Jackson, shirtless, with what appeared to be blood around his neck.
The mother told police Jackson was crying and told her: “I think she’s going to die. She can’t breathe. I think I’m going to jail for the rest of my life.”
