TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A Tucson baby sitter accused in the death of a 10-month-old girl has been convicted of negligent homicide.

Pima County prosecutors say 28-year-old Zada Davis was found guilty by a jury Friday and will be sentenced June 17.

Davis was accused of leaving the infant in a tub with running water and an open drain that became plugged with a plastic toy cup on June 12, 2012.

Prosecutors say Davis put the baby in the tub to help soothe a diaper rash. She then left the bathroom to care for another child, browsed the internet and sorted clothes and didn't check on the child for at least 40 minutes.

When she did, water was overflowing from the tub and the baby was floating face down. The baby later died at a hospital.
