Tivasha Logan LakelandLAKELAND, Florida — A Lakeland woman faces life in prison after jurors found her guilty in the starvation death of her 5-month-old daughter.

Jurors deliberated for seven hours Thursday before finding Tivasha Logan (pictured), 27, guilty of first-degree murder and aggravated manslaughter of a child. A sentencing date has not been set.

The Ledger of Lakeland reports Logan and the baby’s father, Chauncey Gardner, had watered down the baby’s formula, and she wasn’t getting sufficient nutrition to survive. Gardner, 29, faces first-degree murder and other charges. He is being held in the Polk County Jail.

Officials say Chauntasia should have weighed about 14 pounds but was just 6 pounds when she died.

She was found dead Nov. 1, 2009.
