OSWEGO, N.Y. -- A year after the death of 11-year-old Erin Maxwell, her stepbrother has been convicted of her murder. Alan Jones faces 25 years to life in prison.
A jury of 12 men found him guilty of second degree murder with depraved indifference after 10 hours of deliberations spanned over two days.
At one point Thursday afternoon, the jury came out to say they couldn't reach a verdict. The judge told them to go back and keep deliberating until they came to an agreement. About two hours later, that verdict was guilty.
Jones will be held without bail until his sentencing, which is scheduled for early November.
