A man accused of strangling his estranged lover and suffocating her infant daughter has been convicted on two counts of murder.
A Cumberland County jury also found Ricardo Carrillo-Santiago guilty Thursday on two counts of unlawful disposal of human remains in the deaths of Neidy Ramirez and three-month old Genesis Ramirez. Their bodies were found in December 2015 at a nature preserve in Fairfield Township.
The 37-year-old Millville man faces consecutive life terms without the chance for parole when he's sentenced later this year.

Prosecutors say Carrillo-Santiago killed Ramirez and her child at her Vineland apartment. Ramirez was the mother of three, including one fathered by Carrillo-Santiago.
