Dustin Wallace More News
A judge found a man accused of raping and killing a 5-year-old girl when the defendant was 16 guilty of murder and rape.
Dustin Wallace, now 18, waived his right to a jury trial and instead had his case heard by a judge.
The defense argued that Wallace did not intend to kill Sahara Dwight and accidentally smothered her as he molested her.
Prosecutors had argued Wallace killed the girl and then lied about what happened in an attempt to get away with the crime.
Judge Randy Garrison said the video of Wallace being interviewed by police after Dwight’s death shows the teen had no remorse for his actions as he spun elaborate lies about what took place that night.
Garrison found Wallace guilty onsix counts of aggravated murder and one count each of first degree rape, sexual assault and unlawful sexual penetration.
Wallace had spent most of the trial looking down at a courtroom table.
He lowered his head into his hands and rubbed his eyes after the judge announced all 9 guilty verdicts.
The court adjourned until next Tuesday. Sentencing has not been scheduled as the court awaits a decision on whether Wallace, who committed the crimes as a minor, could face life in prison without the opportunity for parole or not.
