DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — The doctor of a 14-year-old Ohio girl who had cerebral palsy and weighed just 28 pounds when she died has been found guilty of three counts of failing to report child abuse or neglect.

Montgomery County prosecutor Mat Heck Jr. says Margaret Edwards was found guilty Friday in juvenile court in Dayton. The Trotwood resident is scheduled to be sentenced on the misdemeanors May 16.

Edwards was Makayla Norman's doctor from July 2010 until the girl's March 2011 death from nutritional and medical neglect complicated by her chronic condition.

Edwards hasn't returned calls seeking comment.

Norman's mother and a nurse were convicted last year of involuntary manslaughter and other charges. Two other nurses were convicted of failing to provide for a functionally impaired person.
