OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former nanny convicted of child abuse in the death of a 4-month-old baby in Omaha has been sentenced to 70 years to life in prison.

Douglas County District Judge Mark Ashford issued the sentence Monday for 25-year-old Sarah Cullen. She will be eligible for parole after she serves 35 years.

A jury in March convicted Cullen of intentional child abuse resulting in death. She was accused of causing injuries in late February 2013 that led to the death of Cash Bell.

Investigators say Cullen gave different accounts of how the baby was injured.
