Kerry Bertrand of Acadia Parish has been found guilty in the August 2013 death of his stepdaughter, 20-year-old Skyler Credeur.

According to our news partners at KATC, the prosecution questioned family members who found Bertrand hiding in the attic of the home where his stepdaughter's body was found, as well as a corrections officer who overheard a conversation Bertrand had in jail, to wrap up its case against him on Wednesday.

A week before police found Credeur drowned in a bath tub inside her Acadia Parish home, she had filed a protective order against Bertrand.
