SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A San Antonio jury has convicted a man in the death of his 7-week-old daughter.

Jurors on Monday found 26-year-old Rafael Trevino guilty of felony murder in the death of Liliana Trevino.

Authorities found the girl unresponsive after her mother called police on Nov. 4, 2010. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy found the child suffered injuries to her head. Authorities say Trevino admitted to shaking the infant.

Prosecutors say he intended to harm her. Trevino’s lawyer says his client didn’t intend to kill the child and “just lost it.”

He faces up to life in prison when the punishment phase of the trial begins on Tuesday
