Ohio pastor convicted of murder in young foster son’s death
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A former Ohio pastor has been convicted of murder and other charges in the death of his 2-year-old foster son.
An attorney for Torace Weaver argued it was accidental. He says the boy hit his head on a wall while Weaver was spinning him around, playing what they called “the Superman game.” The attorney says that the 38-year-old Dayton man panicked and that’s why he initially told police that the boy fell.
The coroner says the child had 20 head injuries, a severe arm burn and injuries on his back. Prosecutors argued that Weaver couldn’t explain the burn and never had it treated. The boy died of a catastrophic skull fracture in November 2015.
Weaver’s wife was found guilty of child endangering.
Their sentencing is scheduled May 5.
