Clinton, Minn. (WDAY TV) - Updating a story we've been following for you, a Clinton, Minnesota man has been convicted of trying to kill a mother and her daughter.

A judge found 29-year Christopher Hyden guilty of 3 attempted murder charges and a criminal sexual conduct charge.

Authorities say Hyden took a 6 year old girl for a ride on a 4 wheeler to the Big Stone County fairgrounds. That's where he raped and tried to kill the girl by slitting her throat.

Hyden then tried to kill the girls’ 27-year old mother by slitting her throat twice and stabbing her in the abdomen at least four times. He could face life in prison without parole when sentenced in October. Hyden remains jailed in Willmar.
