After almost eight hours of deliberations, the jury in the case against a Wichita Falls man accused of causing injuries that led to his infant son's death found him guilty on all charges.
Attorneys also brought up testimony from the doctor that performed the autopsy on Lucas. That doctor said it was impossible to time the infant's injuries and determine when the fatal injury occurred.
And, they told jurors Benefield's wife, Sarah Price, was suffering from postpartum depression and not taking her medication, and told a counselor she had thoughts of throwing the baby out the window.
Prosecutors called the defense's arguments "the spaghetti approach." They say the defense is throwing a bunch of theories at the jurors and hoping one sticks, much like throwing a bunch of spaghetti at a wall in hopes one noodle sticks.
Prosecutors also reminded jurors that a couple of expert witnesses testified that a shaken baby shows the effects of being shaken immediately.
In a recorded interview with police, Benefield admits to being the only adult home right before Lucas was reported unresponsive, so prosecutors say the timeline point to Benefield.
They say they brought some of the nation's top pediatricians that work at Cook Children's Hospital in to give their expert opinions that Lucas died from blunt force trauma to the head and that now it's up to them to find Benefield guilty and give Lucas the justice he deserves.
