Bannister Found Guilty

WEST PALM BEACH (WFLX)---After two days of deliberations, the jury found D'Andre Bannister guilty of second degree murder. 

He was also convicted of Aggravated Child Abuse and Kidnapping- Victim Under 13..

Today, closing arguments took place in the trial of the West Palm man accused of beating his step son, four-year-old year old Tarquez Woodson, to death in 2002.

Bannister claimed the boy fell out of a tree, and his lawyers said that caused the boy's severe brain and internal injuries.  The County's Child Protection Team testified that the boy would have gotten other injuries if that were the case.

There will be a separate day scheduled for his sentencing.
