WMSR News was first to report Thursday (March 29) that Thomas “TJ” Greenwood of Tullahoma was found guilty of 1st degree murder. Greenwood faced accusations after the death of 2-year-old child, Hayden Gage West, on March 9, 2010. Greenwood was babysitting the child at the time. Greenwood told police that he suffered a seizure, and when he fell in the bedroom, the child’s head struck a bed rail in the bedroom.
Tullahoma Dr. Clifford Seyler testified that Hayden had numerous bruises and injuries on various parts of his body. “There were bruises on places not normal for him,” the doctor testified. “There was bruising on his back the shape of a shoe.”
Sentencing for Greenwood will take place Friday (March 30).
