PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to 27 to 54 years in the death of his infant daughter more than two years ago.

Thirty-year-old Lincoln Levys was sentenced Wednesday in Allegheny County on his third-degree murder conviction in the October 2014 death of 5-week-old Saige Levys.

Levys was also convicted of assaulting the girl and another of his children and endangering all three of his children. Police also said they found a growing operation in the home.

Authorities have said the girl suffered body trauma and gouge marks on her cheeks that prosecutors say were caused by Levys’ fingernails.

Levys denied any role in his daughter’s death. His attorney argued that the penalties for all of the convictions should be merged, but the judge disagreed.
