Teen Convicted Of Soliciting Father's Murder

Maryland jurors have convicted a 16-year-old girl of soliciting the slaying of her father who was stabbed to death outside the family's Hagerstown home on Halloween.

The Washington County Circuit Court deliberated about 90 minutes Wednesday before finding Danielle Black guilty of solicitation of first degree murder.

She faces up to life in prison when she is sentenced.

The 20-year-old man charged in the death of 47-year-old Billie Lee Black is not the same friend she spoke to on a school bus about killing her father.

The girl contends she only wanted her father roughed up, not killed.

She told police she had asked some friends to "take care of" him to end beatings she claimed she suffered. Police haven't been able to verify her claims of abuse.
