A judge in Ohio has convicted a father of corpse abuse after his daughter's decomposed body was found in a crib.
Thirty-five-year-old Eric Warfel also was found guilty Wednesday of tampering with evidence.
Ember Warfel's body was discovered last July by a cable company worker in a Medina (meh-DY'-nuh) apartment, south of Cleveland.
Medical examiners couldn't determine how the 21-month-old girl died because of her body's state of decomposition. Warfel's attorney has said Ember was born with severe medical problems.
Warfel had another daughter who died in 2013. A medical examiner ruled the 5-month-old's death as "sudden unexplained infant death."
