Presley guilty of 1st degree murder and child abuse in the death of 3 year old Blake Litton back in February of 2012. Blake’s mother, Jamie Litton still faces a 1st degree murder charge and her trial is expected to take place in Laclede County later this year. Both cases were moved to different counties on a change of venue due to the media exposure the case received. It is unknown when the sentencing hearing will take place.
