Iowa Falls dad convicted of murder of baby daughter

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (AP) -

A 28-year-old Iowa Falls man has been convicted of killing his baby girl in 2012.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says a jury in Waterloo on Thursday found Trevor Smith guilty of first-degree murder and child endangerment in the death of 7-week-old Aubriana Christian.

Prosecutors say Smith was caring for his daughter in September 2012 in Waterloo when she stopped breathing.

Doctors later determined the girl had a brain bleed that wasn't caused by an accident. She died Oct. 2. 2012, after being removed from life support.

Smith told investigators he shook Aubriana because she wouldn't stop crying. He also told police he dropped her onto a bed and let her fall back on a changing table, causing her head to strike the pad.
