LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Mercedes Kemp, 21, was found guilty Friday for the death of her 2-year-old son, Brandon.


Kemp was originally charged with second-degree murder, torture and first-degree child abuse. Her ex-boyfriend, Marcus Hill, also was arrested and charged. He will tried in a seperate trial.

Brandon died in April last year at a local hospital under "suspicious" conditions.
