GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man has been found guilty of capital murder in the 2006 death of his girlfriend’s 5-year-old son in Alabama.

The Gadsden Times reports (http://bit.ly/1Nte36l ) that Kevin Andre Towles was found guilty on Wednesday in the death of Geontae Glass, who died from complications of blunt force trauma injuries.

Prosecutors say Towles beat Glass. Prosecutors have said Towels and the boy’s mother, Shalinda Glass, staged a kidnapping at a gas station to conceal the boy’s death.

Towles was convicted and sentenced to death in 2009, but the case was remanded by the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals for a retrial.

Shalinda has been serving a life sentence since 2012 after she pleaded guilty to murder in the case.
