TIGARD, OR (KPTV/AP) -

The Oregon Court of Appeals has overturned the murder conviction of a Tigard man serving a life sentence for the death of an infant son.

The court said Wednesday the trial judge should have granted a defense motion to suppress evidence found during an examination of Kaliq Mansor's home computers. The appellate judges found the warrant authorizing the search to be overbroad.

Mansor called 911 in June 2011 to report his son Bryan was not breathing. Doctors diagnosed the baby with abusive head trauma and he died two days later. Doctors also examined Bryan's twin and found injuries.

The detectives who checked the father's internet search history found Google searches that included terms such as "abuser therapy," ''father hates infant," and "afraid of abusing my baby."

During his sentencing in October 2012, Mansor said, "To those who believe I am getting what I deserve, I promise you I will take every opportunity to make a positive difference through payments to these debts through good work, not merely time."

The case now returns to Washington County Circuit Court.
