SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — An airline pilot has been convicted of two counts of abusive sexual contact for groping a 14-year-old girl while he was a passenger on a flight from Detroit to Salt Lake City.

Michael Pascal was found guilty Thursday by a jury after a three-day trial in U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.

The girl told investigators that she woke up from a nap on an Oct. 26 Delta Airlines flight and found Pascal's hand under her, gripping her buttocks.

The 45-year-old Pascal, who worked as a pilot for a regional airline carrier that contracts with Delta, told investigators he fell asleep with his hands in his lap and doesn't know how one ended up underneath the girl.

He'll be sentenced July 29 and could face up to five years in prison.

WEST PLAINS, Mo. (AP) — A south-central Missouri woman will be sentenced in May for the death of an infant she admitted dropping because the baby wouldn't stop crying.

KYTV reports 21-year-old Bobbie Derryberry of Mountain View pleaded guilty this week in Howell County Circuit Court to second-degree murder. Other charges were dropped.

Derryberry was accused of killing her 5-month-old daughter, Autumn Nash, in June 2013. Hospital records showed the baby had a fractured skull, broken ribs and extensive bruising.

Investigators said Derryberry told officers she dropped the baby to the floor because she wouldn't stop crying. She also hit the child two or three times on the back, face and nose.

Derryberry had two other children who were placed with a guardian in 2011 after Derryberry was convicted of child endangerment.
