FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) - A 26-year-old Layton man is going to prison for shaking 1-year-old Aliyah Faye Wild and causing her death.

The Standard Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/1P5Z21d) Tyler Ryan Geary pleaded guilty in March to a count of child abuse homicide and another count of child abuse. He was sentenced Thursday to two consecutive sentences of 1 to 15 years, with credit for time served.

Defense lawyer Fred Metos asked for concurrent sentences, saying Layton knew what he’d done was wrong and that he’d never been charged with a violent crime before.

Court documents show Layton called the child’s mother, Jennifer Wild, while she was at work September 10, 2013 to tell her the infant had fallen.

She died a few days later of a brain injury consistent with shaking.
