WORTHINGTON, Minn. -- Shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday, the jury in the murder trial of Josue Fraga -- charged with killing his 2-year-old niece -- came to a verdict.


A few minutes later, as Fraga was staring down at the desk in front of him and wiping away tears, the court reporter read that verdict:

Guilty on all five counts of murder.

“The state is happy with the result, and we think justice was served,” Nobles County Attorney Kathleen Kusz said.
