The father of Harmony Montgomery was convicted this week of murdering his 5-year-old daughter in 2019.

a jury in New Hampshire found Adam Montgomery, 34, guilty of all five charges, including second-degree murder, second-degree assault, witness tampering, falsifying evidence and abuse of corpse, according to The Boston Globe, NBC Boston, and WMUR-TV.

The trial reportedly lasted two weeks and the jury delivered a verdict after about one day of deliberation that began Wednesday. According to WMUR-TV, Adam is scheduled to be sentenced sometime after April 1 and was not present in court when the verdict was read or throughout the trial.

Adam was accused of beating Harmony to death in December 2019, after she became incontinent in their car. Harmony’s remains have never been found.

After the attack, Adam allegedly “pulled into that parking lot at Burger King and he ordered his food,” prosecutor Christopher Knowles said during opening statements, per CBS News.

“He ordered his food and he ate. He didn’t stop to check on Harmony. He didn’t look back at her. He didn’t show any concern for this innocent little girl, the child he had just beaten. He ordered his food, and he ate. And he didn’t stop.”

In the months after the girl’s death, Adam toted Harmony’s body — in a red Under Armour duffel bag, tied up in trash bags — all over Manchester, N.H.

Authorities said he placed Harmony’s body in a cooler and stowed her over a vent in a shelter he shared with his wife and two sons. Then, authorities allege, he placed Harmony’s body into a closet when neighbors complained of the smell, and then snuck her remains into his workplace freezer.

According to the Globe, Kayla testified that she complied with her husband’s demands to help him move Harmony’s remains out of fear for her safety and the safety of her two sons. However, defense attorneys reportedly argued that Kayla concocted a story that pinned the blame on her husband.

During opening statements, Adam admitted in a video call to the presiding judge that he was guilty of abuse of a corpse and falsifying evidence, NBC Boston reported.

Adam is currently serving serving a 30-year prison sentence for an unrelated gun conviction, according to the Globe.
