A Lake County jury has found a woman guilty of murdering a toddler at the day care center where she worked.

Melissa Calusinksi, 25, was convicted of first degree murder.

Prosecutors say she slammed 16-month-old Benjamin Kingan's head to the ground at Minee Subee daycare in Lincolnshire in 2009.

Calusinski faces a possible life sentence.
