NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - A southwest Florida man has been sentenced to life in prison for killing his former fiancee’s toddler daughter.

A Collier County judge sentenced 32-year-old Todd Akers on Friday. He was convicted in May of first-degree murder.

Authorities say Akers was the only one with 2-year-old Abigail Rose Boran when she sustained fatal injuries at an East Naples condominium in May 2006. Akers testified the injuries were sustained when Abigail accidentally fell three times over several hours.

Prosecutors couldn’t say exactly what Akers did to the girl, but two doctors testified that the injuries were too severe to be self-inflicted.

The Naples Daily News (https://goo.gl/hq6oQ6) reports that Akers on Friday once again denied killing the girl intentionally.
