A judge has sentenced an eastern Nebraska man to up to 50 years in prison in the death of his infant daughter.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports York County District Judge J.P. Mullen sentenced 32-year-old Ryan Kozisek of Gresham to 35 to 50 years in prison.
A York County jury found Kozisek guilty of child abuse resulting in the death of his 4-month-old daughter, Kayley Kozisek. Kayley died at an Omaha hospital on Jan. 25, 2011, a day after Kozisek called 911 and said she wasn't breathing.
Kozisek had claimed his 2-year-old daughter fell off a stepping stool and landed on the baby. A doctor says such an accident couldn't have caused Kayley's injuries.
