A man has been convicted in Missouri of killing a 3-year-old girl who became known as "Precious Doe" after her decapitated body was found in 2001.
A jury convicted 29-year-old Harrell Johnson of first-degree murder Wednesday in the death of Erica Green.
Johnson kicked her, then left her to die in a Kansas City home where he and the girl's mother were staying. He cut her head off and dumped the body in the woods.
A police officer later found the body in April 2001. Her identity was unknown until 2005, when a community activist received a tip from the suspect's grandfather in Oklahoma.
