(KMOV) – A Metro East man has been found guilty of burning a three-year-old girl with a cigarette.

Eric Hurley, 32, was convicted of aggravated battery of a child and could face five years in prison.

The three-year-old told her father that Hurley burned her because she wouldn’t stop crying, but Hurley says the burns are a skin rash.

A pediatrician testified saying the injuries are consistent with cigarette burns.
