A jury in northwest Indiana is now determining how a woman should be sentenced after it found her guilty of murdering a 2-year-old girl.

Twenty-year-old Engelica Castillo of Hobart was found guilty Thursday of killing jada Justice while babysitting the toddler.

Prosecutors say Castillo beat the child and then dumped her body in a swamp.

The jury spent Friday considering whether Castillo should be sentenced to life in prison without parole after convicting her of murder, neglect and battery charges.
