KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - A Richland man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for raping and killing his then-girlfriend’s baby daughter.

37-year-old Jose Luis Aguilar was sentenced Wednesday in Benton County Superior Court in Kennewick.

The Tri-City Herald reports he pleaded guilty in July to second-degree murder and first-degree rape of a child.

Serenity Jade Reedy was 9 months old when her lifeless body was found in her crib by her mother.

An autopsy showed the baby had at least two skull fractures and hemorrhaging around her eyes and other injuries.
