PEARISBURG (WVVA) - A Giles County jury has found a Rich Creek man accused of killing his infant daughter not guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Aaron Edwards, 26, was charged in connection with the March 2011 death of his 7-month-old daughter Ella.

Investigators say Ella died from severe trauma to her head.

The jury began deliberations Friday morning. The verdict was reached Friday afternoon.

A previous charge of child abuse against Edwards was dropped on Wednesday.

Edwards' wife Karen is scheduled to go to trial in August for child abuse resulting in serious injury.
