TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A jury has found Dwayne Poole guilty of manslaughter and aggravated child abuse in the death of his 16-month-old son.

Prosecutors say Poole beat his baby to death in May of 2011.

During the trial, jurors saw graphic photos of injuries on the bay's stomach and legs.

Initially, Poole and his girlfriend Tonya Myers told authorities the child had fallen down the stairs.

But Myers testified that she lied in an effort to protect Poole.

Poole will be sentenced March 28.
