A midwife in Arizona is accused of causing the death of a newborn in a hospital electrocuted with a taser.
Midwife Amanda Moore was found guilty of felony second-degree murder Tuesday in Clark County Superior Court.
Prosecutors said Moore gave her husband a tase gun at home and put the baby in the bathtub to stop him from choking it.
The toddler died of electrocutions.
Moore has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.
She faces up to life in prison if convicted.
The incident happened in 2014 in Mesa, Ariz.
The mother of the baby was charged with second- and third-degree felony murder and involuntary manslaughter.
Prosecutors say Moore’s husband was at work when the incident happened.
He told police he heard an argument and saw his wife trying to get the baby out of the bath.
He called 911 and Moore told dispatchers the baby had been electrocuting with a stun gun.
Moore said she called the emergency services and then went to the hospital to check on the baby.
She says she was told that her husband was dead, and that the baby did not survive.
Moores attorney says she is innocent.
