A Wichita County jury has reportedly returned a guilty verdict in capital murder trial of Benjamin Jerome Prince.

Prince has been held on a $2 million bond since August of 2009.  He was charged with capital murder in the death of his son, 2 year-old Trebian Prince.  Benjamin Prince was accused of beating the infant to death with a claw hammer.

It took the jury just under 1-1/2 hours to return their verdict.  30th District Judge Bob Brotherton will announce a life sentence without possibility for parole for Prince.  The sentence is mandatory under Texas law, as the prosecution decided to not seek the death penalty.
