A federal jury Friday convicted an Alabama man for kidnapping and conspiracy to kidnap a 3-year-old little girl.

The jury returned its guilty verdict against Patrick Devone Stallworth, 42, after three days of testimony before Chief U.S. District Court Judge L. Scott Coogler. 

Stallworth was convicted of one count of kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to kidnap a minor victim arising out of events that occurred in October 2019. 

The jury further found that the minor victim’s death resulted from the kidnapping. Stallworth faces life in prison.

According to evidence presented at trial, on October 12, 2019, Stallworth traveled in a Toyota Sequoia with a co-conspirator to the Tom Brown Village Housing Development located in Birmingham, Alabama, and kidnapped 3-year-old Kamille “Cupcake” McKinney. 

Her body was found 10 days later.

“Today, the jury held the defendant accountable for his actions in victimizing one of the most vulnerable victims in our community, a 3-year-old child. This office remains dedicated to prosecuting those criminals who prey on children,” U.S. Attorney Escalona said. “Just as the search for the victim involved many of our local, state, and federal partners, the trial this week also would not have been successful without these agencies.  I am grateful for their hard work and dedication.”

“While today’s verdict does not take away the pain for Kamille’s family, or the void in their life that they can never fill, they at least know we are one step closer to justice being served on those responsible,” Acting SAC Rivera said.
