An autopsy, which was performed the day after Liliana’s death, revealed the infant had ingested alcohol and had suffered numerous abrasions and contusions to her head and neck, documents state.

County Coroner Pam Gay said that the presence of alcohol in Liliana’s system was not the primary cause of death and that the cuts also were not enough to cause her death. There was also no report of sexual abuse, she added.

Becker also is charged with involuntary manslaughter, endangering the welfare of a child and tampering with evidence.

Live coverage of the Joseph Fitzpatrick first-degree murder trial

Authorities contend that Joseph Bernard Fitzpatrick III faked an ATV accident to cover up his wife’s murder.

Follow live coverage of his first-degree murder trial in York County court below or on Twitter @RickLeeYDR or#Fitz.

The prosecution alleges Annemarie Fitzpatrick’s $1.7 million life insurance policies and his ongoing relationship with another woman were his motives to kill his wife.

Fitzpatrick, 42, told authorities that he and his wife were celebrating a late wedding anniversary by the creek that bordered their property on June 6, 2012. He said she was in control of the ATV, with him riding behind her, when she backed them over a 6-foot embankment and into the 8-foot deep creek.

Fitzpatrick said he dove repeatedly looking for his wife’s body before spotting it on the other side of the creek. After Pennsylvania State Police attempted to reconstruct the fatal ATV ride, the death was ruled a homicide.

Troopers also found a note in Annemarie Fitzpatrick’s day planner that read, “If anything happens to me – Joe.”
