Jury finds Portland father guilty of murdering daughter
Darian Lee McWoods, 25, was convicted of killing his 15-month-old daughter, Kamaya Flores, by homicidal violence on Dec. 17, 2013.
The jury unanimously convicted McWoods on all counts.
Flores was found with broken ribs and facial bruising. The Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office confirmed methadone toxicity as Flores' cause of death. The autopsy also found evidence of compression asphyxia.
Evidence presented during the trial showed Flores was with McWoods, who was 20 years old in 2013, at the time of her death.
McWoods was indicted Dec. 9, 2016. He was charged with two counts of murder by abuse, three counts of first-degree manslaughter and one count each of criminally negligent homicide, criminal mistreatment in the first degree and tampering with a witness.
The jury also indicted McWoods' sister, Diamond McWoods, on charges of perjury, tampering with a witness and false swearing in Flores' death. She was convicted of perjury and lying to police May 14.
Opening statements for McWoods' case began in May and the jury deliberated Monday.
McWoods' sentencing is scheduled for July 18, 2018 at 9 a.m.
