TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - A Toledo woman has been convicted of killing her 6-month-old son, who died two days after his skull was broken.

Jurors on Friday found 26-year-old Amanda Bacon guilty of murder and child endangering. She was cleared of an aggravated murder charge.

Bacon testified during the trial that her roommate was the one who injured the baby. She also said that her roommate had forced her to prostitute herself.

But her roommate testified that he saw Bacon throw her son Avery to the floor in December 2012.

Prosecutors say she bashed the baby’s head, fracturing his skull so severely that he died two days later at the University of Michigan hospital.
