WINNIPEG - A jury has found a Winnipeg man guilty of first degree murder in the stabbing death of his former girlfriend's three year old son.
34 year old Daniel Jensen stabbed Hunter Smith-Straight six times in the head in 2019 in the North End.
A relative found the toddler injured in his bed. He was taken off of life support in hospital a few days later.
The Crown argued that Jensen attacked Hunter to get back at the boy's mom after they had a violent argument.
Jensen's defence lawyer claimed the evidence was only circumstantial and no one saw what happened.
A first degree murder conviction comes with an automatic life sentence and no parole for at least 25 years.
