ODESSA - A shocking verdict came down in an Odessa courtroom on Thursday evening.

A step-father accused of killing an infant has been found not guilty.

It took the jury several hours to come to that decision.

John Bailey was charged with capital murder for the death of his five-week-old stepson Dustyn Wright.

In 2008, police say the baby was kicked and thrown around and eventually died from a blow to the head.
