CALHOUN COUNTY, Mich. — A man was found not guilty in the death of a Calhoun County girl Monday afternoon.
A jury found Anthony Ball, 30, not guilty of homicide in the death of 20-month-old Athena Ramey. However, Ball was convicted of second degree child abuse.
In December 2014, police say that Athena was found unresponsive at a home off Old US-127. She was taken to the hospital but died the next day. Ball was boyfriend of her mother and was arrested on homicide and child abuse charges.
A sentencing date for Ball hasn’t been set yet.
