Anthony Hutchens, the teenager accused of molesting and murdering six-year-old Grace Ross in 2021, was found guilty by a judge on Thursday.
Hutchens was originally charged with murder, felony murder, and child molesting.
The court dismissed his felony murder charge for double jeopardy concerns.
Hutchens, who is now 16 years old but was 14 at the time of the crime, was tried as an adult.
The verdict follows a two-day bench trial, in which the prosecution called up a number of witnesses, including Ross’s stepfather, who was home on the day of the murder, and a now nine-year-old girl who was playing with Ross on the day she was murdered.
On Tuesday, the court watched a 90-minute video of detectives interviewing Hutchens the same day Ross was killed.
During the interview, Hutchens said a shadowy figure knocked him out and then took control of his body, putting his hands on Ross’s neck, according to reports.
Hutchens said when he woke up, Ross was already dead, according to reports.
He will be sentenced on March 31.
