Daniel Ehrlick convicted in Idaho in death of child Robert Manwill

At the end of a day’s worth of arguments, gruesome photographs and impassioned pleas, an Ada County deputy prosecutor pointed at Daniel Ehrlick and told him he was about to be held accountable for the death of a child. Less than three hours later, the jury handed down the decision: Guilty of first-degree murder by torture and aggravated battery. Ehrlick slumped in his chair after sitting upright and attentive throughout the trial. Afterward, he would not look at the jurors and stared at the defense table. He faces up to life in prison. In a short statement to reporters, Robert Manwill’s father, Charles, thanked police, prosecutors and the community. As he turned away from the cameras, he pumped his arms in an emotional show of victory.
