LIBERTY, Mo. - A northwest Missouri man was sentenced to 20 years in prison for causing his 3-week-old daughter's death.
Thirty-year-old Tristan R. Williams of Liberty was sentenced Thursday for second-degree murder in the March 2010 death of his daughter.
Williams initially told police that two cats pushed his daughter over while she was in a bouncing chair.
The Kansas City Star reports investigators found no evidence that the child had fallen. They said her injuries were from non-accidental trauma, and she had several fractures, bruises, retinal hemorrhage and swelling of the brain.
