MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -

A jury has found a man guilty of killing a 14-year-old girl along a popular suburban Detroit nature trail.

The Macomb County jury convicted James VanCallis Monday of first-degree murder, kidnapping and assault with intent to rape in the death of April Millsap. Authorities say the St. Clair County man hit the teen with a motorcycle helmet and stomped on her in July 2014 while she was walking her dog along the Macomb Orchard Trail in Armada.

His lawyer has said there's no DNA evidence linking his client to the crime.
