Does anyone know if a verdict was reached today (Thursday)? There was an article in the Oakland Press yesterday regarding the trial.

He deserve to go away forever. I wish we all could have decided on first degree murder, then there would be no doubt he would go to prison for life!

He deserved more than 30 to 60 years, but that's the decision from the judge. At least he'll be there a minimum of 30 before any chance for parole. Maybe NEVER be released in our lifetime!

Steven McBurney only received 30-60 years. The first degree murder charges were dropped...If he ever does make it back out of there he is sure to have learned his lesson...One can hope..

my mistake. The first degree murder charges were dropped to a lesser degree charge. In court the deadpan look never seemed to go away. I wonder if he actually just accepted the fact that his life had ended and moved on...without feeling a touch of remorse...

NOVI -- A 31-year-old South Lyon man was arraigned on felony murder and child abuse charges today in the death of his 11-month-old daughter.
Steven McBurney faces up to life in prison without parole for allegedly shaking his infant daughter, Madison McBurney, and throwing her into her crib Nov. 30 because she would not stop crying causing severe head injuries.
Oakland County Assistant Prosecutor Kelly Chard said McBurney admitted to throwing his daughter into her crib from about two feet away, and said she struck her head on a spindle and began convulsing. She died of severe head injuries Monday evening at the University of Michigan Hospital.
He is being held without bond at the Oakland County Jail in Pontiac and will be back before 52-1 District Court Judge Dennis N. Powers on Dec. 13.
McBurney previously pleaded guilty to second-degree child abuse in Wayne County in 1998 for fracturing a 4 -month-old boy's skull. He received four years of probation.
Chard said she was unsure whether McBurney was the father of the child in the 1998 case
Knowing Steve in high school, I was soo shocked to hear this. My son cries and screams,even digs his nails into my skin but throwing him should never happen...period! I'm soo sorry for Madison and her family,may God watch over you and care for you all. Steve, I hope you give your life over to Jesus......He is the only way,Truth and the Life. He can make a difference in your life.

This idiot kills your baby & you take his side? If you knew he had mental issues, you should of never of had your child around him.

To Madison's MOM, I think of you often and every time I do my heart aches. I have always prayed for you and I always will. I know that the anniversary of Madison's passing is coming up again, I pray that you are ok. I pray that you have found happiness again, if that is possible. I sure hope so because you are a wonderful person and you deserve that. You are also one of the strongest people I have ever known. I know we have lost touch. I just want you know that I have never stopped thinking about you and I never will.
