OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon City woman has been found guilty of causing the death of a 7-month-old boy who she had been babysitting.

Thirty-eight-year-old Sarah Martin was convicted of murder on Wednesday in the April 2015 death of Izaak Gillen.

Martin had been babysitting Gillen when paramedics responded to a call that the boy stopped breathing. The baby died at a hospital the following day.

The state medical examiner had determined that the baby died from head injuries and ruled his death a homicide.

During the two-week trial, Martin testified the boy choked on a snack and hit his head on the kitchen counter as she placed him down during the 911 call.

The judge rejected Martin’s claims, saying it was clear Martin had inflicted a traumatic injury on the boy.
