Toren Hains. (October 2013)

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has been found guilty of killing his girlfriend’s 14-month-old daughter in late 2012.

Toren Hains, 22, was found guilty Tuesday of one count of felony homicide and one count of first-degree child abuse.

Authorities were called to an apartment on S. 11th Street in Oshtemo Township on Dec. 30, 2012 to reports of an unresponsive baby. The child was taken to Bronson Methodist Hospital, where she died the next day.

Hains was not charged with the death until October 2013, after autopsy results came in and the investigation progressed.

A sentencing date has not yet been set.
