JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WDRB) -- Christopher Bruck, a southern Indiana man charged in the death of his 4-year-old son, has been found guilty on all charges.

A jury found Bruck guilty Monday of aggravated battery resulting in the death of a child and neglect of a dependent resulting in the death of a child. 

Family identified the boy as Hayden Dukes. His mother was overjoyed with the jury's verdict. 

"[We're] really emotional but relieved that we got the justice we wanted for Hayden,"  Amanda Dukes said.

According to an arrest warrant in January of 2015, Bruck said he watching TV at home when he quote "lost control" and struck Hayden in the forehead.

The 4-year-old hit his head on the carpeted concrete floor. 

Reports show Bruck waited 90 mins to call for an ambulance, and by that time, it was way too late. 

Amanda Dukes had a hard time looking at her former husband during the trial. 

"Ever since I've seen him, I've had nightmares," she said. 

The prosecution is seeking a sentence of 40 to 80 years. He'll be back in court Nov. 7.
