AKRON -- Summit County Prosecutor Sherri Bevan Walsh said a jury found John M. Muzic, 28, of Northfield Village, guilty of rape, kidnapping and gross sexual imposition.
In late January, Muzic stopped by his neighbor's house while a teenage babysitter was there and brought the girl back to his house after she asked to see his dogs.
Muzic dragged the girl to his bedroom and threatened to kill her, and then raped her.
Muzic's DNA was found on a bite mark on the girl as well as in her underwear.
Judge Alison McCarty will sentence Muzic on at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 6.
