DETROIT -

A Detroit man accused of fatally beating his 2-year-old daughter for wetting herself has been convicted of murder.

Bianca Jones’ body has never been found, but prosecutors say D'Andre Lane used a stick wrapped in a towel to beat Bianca to death Dec.2, 2011, before disposing of her body.

Lane says carjackers took his vehicle with his daughter inside. His car was later found, but the girl wasn’t inside.

He was found guilty Friday of felony murder and child abuse, one day after the jury started deliberating.

He will be sentenced in November.
