Christopher Conley convicted of trying to kill 7-year-old daughter
Christopher Conley was convicted Friday of trying to kill his 7-year-old daughter by poisoning her with drain cleaner and prescription painkillers.
Conley injected Liquid-Plumr into his severely ill daughter’s cecostomy tube on April 15, 2015 and then tried to give her an overdose of her opioid pain medications, prosecutors said. A cecostomy tube is used to help empty the bowels.
As a result, the girl had to undergo a seven-hour surgery to remove two-thirds of her small intestine and another surgery to remove one-third of her bladder, authorities said.
He is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday at 9 a.m.
The jury began deliberation Thursday afternoon after the defense rested. It returned with a guilty verdict on all three counts early Friday afternoon.
Conley told police at the time of his arrest he tried to kill the girl because he wanted to end her suffering. The jury found Christopher Conley guilty on charges of attempted murder, assault and battery on a child by means of a dangerous weapon (opiates) and assault and battery on a child causing substantial bodily injury.
Conley and his then-wife, Julie Conley of Northampton were charged in 2015 with intentionally harming their daughter when she was 7 years old.
He was accused of injecting Liquid-Plumr into her cecostomy tube, which caused significant damage to her intestines. A cecostomy tube is a type of catheter that is used to flush out the intestines.
According to the office of Northwestern District Attorney David E. Sullivan, Julie Conley is scheduled to go on trial on March 9.
Christopher Conley at the time of his arrest admitted to police that he poisoned his daughter with drain cleaner.
The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports that when he took the stand in his trial, he recanted the confession, and said he was put up to confessing by Julie Conley.
