MEDICINE HAT — A southern Alberta man has been found guilty of manslaughter in the death of his former girlfriend’s two-year-old son.
The judge hearing the case said he couldn’t accept the version of events given to investigators by Cody Allen Tomlinson.
Carter Murfin was injured in his home in Brooks in August 2005 and rushed to hospital.
Court heard that the night before, Tomlinson had been pulling him on a short board used for body-surfing and the child hit his head on a chair.
But Justice James Langston pointed to several minutes shortly before the toddler passed out when Tomlinson was alone with him in a bathroom.
The judge adjourned sentencing to Nov. 19.
