Conroe area man guilty in toddler's 2008 death

CONROE, TX The penalty phase was scheduled Tuesday for 20-year-old Blaine Milam. Jurors late Monday night convicted him of capital murder in the December 2008 death of 13-month-old Amora Bain Carson.

Prosecutors, who are seeking the death penalty, say the victim was beaten with a hammer in an alleged exorcism at the child's rural home near Henderson.

Amora's mother, Jesseca Carson, faces a capital murder charge in the killing and awaits trial.

The Milam trial was moved about 160 miles from Rusk County, to Montgomery County, due to extensive publicity about the case.
