HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) - A man has been convicted again of abusing one of his infant children.

An Ottawa County jury Friday found 28-year-old Ryan Kupres guilty of first-degree child abuse and being a habitual offender. A verdict came after a four-day trial.

Kupres is scheduled to be sentenced April 15.

He was convicted of violently shaking and injuring his 5-month-old daughter Layla, who was in serious condition for a few days in April 2012. Layla has since recovered from her injuries and appears to not have any lasting effects.

The Ottawa County Sheriff's Department arrested Kupres after finding medical records from a 2008 case in which Kupres pleaded no contest in the abuse of another baby who was his then 3-week-old son he has with another woman. That baby also sustained broken bones. Kupres spent a year in jail for the crime.
