Father Found Guilty in Son's Death

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) -- A jury took less than 45 minutes to convict a Mason City man in connection with the 2012 death of his 18-month-old son.
   The Cerro Gordo County jury on Tuesday quickly found 30-year-old Kenneth L. Adams guilty of child endangerment resulting in death.
   Adams was charged after the Oct. 27, 2012, death of his son, Owen.
   Prosecutors allege the boy head-butted his father, prompting Adams to get angry and hold the child face-down on a pillow.
   Owen was taken to a Mason City hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
   Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 8.
   The conviction carries a mandatory sentence of 50 years in prison.
