A Philadelphia man, Anwar Salahuddin, has been convicted of murdering his 17 month-old daughter after she pulled over his “Xbox console”. He was found guilty of third-degree murder and endangering a child and now faces between 23 and 47 years in prison.

As previously reported, Salahuddin stamped on the girl’s head, causing fatal injuries. Jurors rejected arguments that Salahuddin had confessed to the murder in order to protect the girl’s mother.
