A jury found Devin Donell Fields, 27, guilty of capital murder today in the July 2013 shooting death of Baby Girl Mshae Harrison, 19, who was 21 weeks pregnant.

Since the state wasn’t seeking the death penalty, Fields was automatically sentenced by the judge to life in prison without parole.

The testimony part of the trial ended Friday, and jurors were given the holiday weekend off.

Closing arguments were made this morning; the jury began deliberating at about 1:15 p.m. and had reached a verdict by 2:30 p.m.
