EDMONTON - A man accused in the death of his young son found outside an Edmonton church has been convicted of manslaughter.

Joey Crier and his then-girlfriend, Tasha-Lee Doreen Mack, were each charged with second-degree murder in the death of 19-month old Anthony Joseph Raine.

The toddler's lifeless body was found outside the Good Shepherd Anglican Church in 2017.

Court of Queen's Bench Justice David Labrenz found Crier guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter.

Mack was also convicted of manslaughter at her trial, but the Crown is appealing that verdict and asking for a new trial.

She has not yet been sentenced.
