HOUSTON - A jury has reached a guilty verdict in the trial of a Houston woman accused of burying her baby alive.

Narjes Modarresi was found guilty of capital murder Thursday afternoon.

Her lawyer had tried to convince the jury that bi-polar disorder caused her to kill the baby.

On Wednesday, a psychiatrist testified that having the baby made her illness worse.

The judge told jury members that they could consider a lesser charge.

Modarresi, 32, faces up to life in prison.
