A Cedar Rapids man accused of killing his young daughter has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter and child endangerment.

Both are less serious offenses than the first-degree murder charge prosecutors first pursued.

According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, a jury returned verdicts against Zyriah Schlitter Friday night following a two-week trial.

They carry maximum sentences of 55 years in prison.

Investigators say 17-month-old Kamryn suffered head injuries and had bruises all over her body on March 28th, 2010.

Schlitter testified that he wasn’t concerned about the bruising when he took her to a doctor, just before her death.

Amy Parmer, 29, of Hiawatha, is also charged in this case with first-degree murder and child endangerment resulting in death. Her trial is set for January 14th.
