LOS ANGELES (AP) — A jury has found that a Southern California man convicted of killing his 5-year-old niece and hiding her body was sane at the time of the fatal stabbing.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say a jury deliberated for a few hours Friday before determining that 29-year-old Julian Carter was sane when he killed Mireya McCall.

Prosecutors say McCall was originally reported missing by her mother, but her dead body was later found in a trash bag inside Carter's closet.

A jury convicted Carter of second-degree murder in February, but on the question of whether Carter was sane, the first jury deadlocked.

Carter faces 32 years-to-life in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in late July.
