HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County jury has found teenager accused of beating a baby alpaca to death guilty on all counts.
Marcus Miller was found guilty on charges of breaking and entering, tampering with evidence, vandalism and grand theft. He pled guilty Tuesday to a misdemeanor charge of cruelty to animals.
Police say Miller and another teen, Nicholas Reynolds, went to a Madison Township farm in February and beat the baby alpaca to death. Reynolds is serving a 20-months jail sentence after pleading guilty to his charges.
On Wednesday, an accomplice in the case, Stacie Mullins, took the witness stand for prosecutors. She testified that she drove the teens to the farm, then watched them hit the alpaca with a wooden board.
A detective in the case also took the stand for prosecutors before the jury began their deliberations.
Sentencing for Miller is scheduled for January 13, 2011.
