DENVER (AP) - A jury has convicted a man in the death of his 3-month-old daughter in suburban Denver.

The Denver Post reports 39-year-old Kelly Ray Kerr was found guilty this week of child abuse resulting in death.

Authorities say the infant's mother called 911 from work after Kerr told her Olivia was not breathing at a Lakewood home in July 2017. The child died that night at the hospital.

Prosecutors say the child had multiple injuries, including a major skull fracture, multiple rib fractures and bruising on her face and jaw.

The Jefferson County coroner told the court that Olivia's cause of death was blunt force trauma.

Kerr is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
