An Evansville woman was convicted of neglect resulting in death after a jury trial wrapped up Wednesday.

A Vanderburgh County jury found the mother was guilty of neglect in the death of her 3-month-old son.

Chelsea Marksberry's baby Kieran was found unresponsive in January of last year.

The Vanderburgh County prosecutors say Marksberry played a role in his death by leaving the young child with his father, Jacob Bengert.

Police say Bengert is a known drug user.

Bengert will spend most of his life in prison after being convicted of causing blunt force trauma to Kieran.

Marksberry is expected to be sentenced at a later date.
