Robert: Trent Butt found guilty of murdering 5 year old daughter
A jury has found Trent Butt guilty of first degree murder in the death of his 5 year old daughter, Quinn.
During his trial, Butt admitted to killing his daughter, but said he couldn’t recall how he did it. He would conclude he must have suffocated her.
The jury ultimately had to decide whether or not Butt planned the murder ahead of time.
Butt killed his daughter in their house in Carbonear in 2016. After the slaying of his daughter, Butt set his house on fire and attempted to commit suicide.
