Lonnell McDonald was found guilty on Friday and sentenced to 10 years in prison for aggravated assault. The 28-year-old is still facing a pending charge for conspiracy to commit capital murder.
For any of you who may have missed the original story, the victim was raped and impregnated by her older brother in 2012 when she was just 14-years-old. She did not report the crime because she was embarrassed, but five months later her family could see that she was pregnant.

At first, 45-year-old Sharon Jones tried giving the girl multiple doses of birth control pills, emergency contraception pills and cinnamon tablets.
When none of these methods killed the baby, the family decided the only course of action was to beat the baby out of her.…
