A jury found Richard McTear Jr. guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his ex-girlfriend's baby boy on Thursday evening.
McTear Jr., 26, is charged with causing the death of 4-month-old Emanuel Murray by throwing him out of his car window on Interstate 275 in May 2009.
He was found guilty on the following charges: first-degree murder, felony murder, burglary, aggravated child abuse, battery and kidnapping.
Sentencing begins on Monday. McTear faces the death penalty.

Jurors began deliberations around 10 a.m. on Thursday.
During final arguments Wednesday, McTear's attorneys said there is not enough evidence to legally tie McTear to the crime. Instead, defense attorneys said the baby's injuries could have been caused by the child's mother, Jasmine Bedwell or her new boyfriend.
"This is a case about reasonable doubt," defense attorney Michael Peacock told the court on Wednesday. "That’s what this case is about. This is a case about the credibility of Jasmine Bedwell, the credibility."
The prosecution disagreed, saying McTear is responsible.
"The injuries to Murray (the baby) are entirely consistent with him having been ejected from a motor vehicle," prosecutor Ronald Gale said.
