An Evansville woman was convicted of neglect resulting in death after a jury trial wrapped up Wednesday.

A Vanderburgh County jury found the mother was guilty of neglect in the death of her 3-month-old son.

Chelsea Marksberry's baby Kieran was found unresponsive in January of last year.

The Vanderburgh County prosecutors say Marksberry played a role in his death by leaving the young child with his father, Jacob Bengert.

Police say Bengert is a known drug user.

Bengert will spend most of his life in prison after being convicted of causing blunt force trauma to Kieran.

Marksberry is expected to be sentenced at a later date.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
