MARION, Ind (21Alive) -- The trial for a Marion man charged in a 2-Year-Old's death has concluded with the jury finding Donald W. Riddle guilty.

Riddle was found guilty on charges of Neglect Resulting Death, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Possession of Marijuana. The verdict came in last night after the jury took just over an hour to deliberate.

The body of 2-Year-Old Arianna Carmack was found dead on Feburary 14th inside her home in Marion. The Grant County Coroner says Carmack was injured with a flash burn from an unidentified chemical.

Arianna did not die from the flash burn, but the injuries contributed to her death, according to the autopsy results.

The coroner's report also noted multiple bruises to Arianna's body.
