DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) - A Dodge City man has been found not guilty in the death of a 3-year-old girl.

After 10 days of testimony, a Ford County jury on Monday found Brock Cunningham not guilty of child abuse and first-degree murder. He was charged in 2013 in the death of Natalie Pickle, who died in 2008 while in Cunningham’s care. At the time, Cunningham was the boyfriend of the girl’s mother.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports (https://bit.ly/1JwBkqw ) Cunningham said the girl was jumping on a bed and hit her head when she fell off. She was flown to a Wichita hospital, where she died.

An autopsy found the girl died of blunt force trauma and her death was classified as a homicide.
