HAYSVILLE, Kan. — A southern Kansas man has been found guilty of second-degree murder in the 2018 death of his 4-month-old daughter.
Television station KAKE reports that 36-year-old Andrew Franklin of Haysville pleaded no contest last month to the reduced charge and a single count of child abuse in the death of Brexley Grace Franklin.
