30-year old, Ken Jermaine Fowler of Tuba City, Arizona, who is a member of the Navajo Nation, was found guilty by a federal jury of involuntary manslaughter and assault resulting in serious bodily injury of a minor, who happened to be his infant daughter.  The case was brought before U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow from March 3rd to March 26th, 2015.

The defendant was put back into police custody after trial. According to the FBI, “The evidence at trial showed that Fowler assaulted the ten week old infant on the Navajo Nation Indian Reservation while she was alone in his care. The assault caused massive brain injury that resulted in her death four days later.”

A conviction for assault that results in serious bodily injury of a minor has a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum penalty of life in prison, a $250,000.00 fine, or both.

The FBI led the investigation on the matter.

The prosecution was handled by Christine Ducat Keller and Sharon K. Sexton, assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona in Phoenix.

Fowler will be sentenced by Judge Snow on June 29, 2015.
