MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A judge has sentenced a Milwaukee man to just over 30 years in prison for what she called the "absolute torture" of his baby girl.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the child's injuries included a burn pattern on her back that matched the pattern of a charcoal grill in her family's kitchen, as well as severe burns on her legs and inside her mouth, bites and bruises, and severe brain injuries of the sort that come from being violently shaken, slammed down or thrown.
Twenty-one-year-old Corey Burns, who pleaded guilty last month, was sentenced by Judge Rebecca Dallet on Thursday. He apologized and said he took full responsibility for his actions.
Prosecutor Matthew Torbenson says no words can describe the "depravity and inhumanity" that Burns showed the girl.
