Almost two years after the death of his 4-month old son, Robert Stivers was found guilty by a jury of his peers in the child’s killing Monday evening. Christian County State’s Attorney Mike Havera says the three-week long trial’s result was a culmination of outstanding police work and coordination between multiple agencies.

 

Havera says in less than two days, multiple police agencies uncovered the evidence in the case that led to the conviction.

 

 

Havera says the trial was delayed so long because it was a challenge getting all of the experts and witnesses together. But, after nearly two years, the family can now start to heal knowing justice was served.

 

 

Stivers now will remain in custody without bond until a sentencing hearing scheduled for March 8th at 1:15 p.m.
