A Cleveland County, Oklahoma jury found Donald Reeser guilty of murdering two-year-old Allie Croom by forcing Allie's head under water at Lake Stanley Draper, causing her to drown. The girl was the daughter of his girlfriend.
Reeser was led to prison in handcuff, sentenced for life without parole for the drowning death. The jury took just over five hours to come to a decision.
Prosecutors released evidence they say shows that Reeser made a phone call to his 5-year-old son, telling him what to say when questioned by authorities, reports say.
