ROCHESTER, New York — A 23-year-old Rochester man has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of his 9-month-old son.

Local media report that Maurice Faison also was found guilty by a jury Wednesday of first-degree aggravated manslaughter, first-degree criminal contempt and other charges related to death in September of his son Tristan.

The child's mother told authorities Faison was taking care of their son at their Rochester apartment while she was at work. When she got home and checked on the baby, she realized he wasn't breathing.

The medical examiner's office ruled the cause of death blunt force trauma.

Faison's sentencing is scheduled for July 24.
