Two days after taking the stand in his own defense, Daniel Kelly has been found guilty for his role in the 2006 death of his daughter Danieal Kelly. A jury found the 40-year-old guilty of endangering the welfare of a child after 14-year-old Danieal died in the care of her mother, despite Daniel Kelly’s reported knowledge of his daughter being neglected.
Also found guilty were Dana Poindexter and Mickal Kamuvaka. Poindexter, a former DHS social worker, was found guilty of endangering the welfare of a child, reckless Eendangerment and perjury. Kamuvaka was the chief administrator for the firm DHS hired to monitor Danieal Kelly’s health, and is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence, perjury, forgery, reckless endangerment and conspiracy.
All three are scheduled for a Sept. 6 sentencing hearing.
