The official Xinhua News Agency said the Changchun Intermediate People's Court found Zhou Xijun guilty of murder and sentenced him to death on Monday.
State media reports say Zhou stole an SUV parked outside a supermarket, its engine still running, in Changchun city in March. He drove it onto a motorway before finding the two-month-old baby sleeping in the back seat.
The court found that Zhou strangled the child and buried him in the snow. He turned himself in after the case triggered public fury and a manhunt was launched.
