PHOENIX (AP) - A Mesa woman has been convicted of first-degree murder in the 2011 death of her 4-year-old daughter.

Maricopa County prosecutors say jurors also found 30-year-old Crystal Carimbocas guilty Wednesday on two counts of child abuse.

She's scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 18.

Authorities say Anays Chenal Carimbocas was taken to a Mesa hospital in May 2011 with fatal injuries that her mother's boyfriend said incurred when the girl fell into an apartment complex's pool.

Prosecutors say the pool was closed for renovation on the day of the incident.

They also say an autopsy revealed injuries that occurred long before the day of the girl's death including skull fractures, a lacerated liver, broken ribs and numerous bruises.

Crystal Carimbocas and her 24-year-old boyfriend, Jose Gonzalez-Dominguez, were tried separately in the case.
