Jury finds man guilty of killing girlfriend’s toddler
MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee man is convicted of killing his girlfriend’s two-year-old boy.
Corey Benson is charged in the death of the two-year-old boy last April. He’s also charged with abusing the same child the year before.
Court records show Benson was caring for the toddler, left him alone in a bath tub, and came back to find him face down. Benson then took him to the hospital, saying it was all an accident.
An ER nurse who tried to revive the child at the hospital found undigested food in the child’s throat.
A jury found Benson guilty Monday, March 26th. He’ll be sentenced in July.
