Infant Murder Trial Ends

A Potter County jury found Ronnie Mason guilty of killing an 8-month-old baby Tuesday. 

Police found Iveonna Durley not breathing in an apartment at the North Grand Villas back in 2004.  She died later that night at a local hospital.

Jurors convicted Mason of capital murder, a conviction that often carries the death sentence, but at the request of families of both the victim and Mason, prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to waive the death penalty.

Prosecutor Pat Murphy told NewsChannel 10, "This is a tragedy that involved family members that would end up being witnesses as well as victims of this crime."

Mason was sentenced to life in prison and will be eligible for parole after 40 years.
