NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire woman has been sentenced to 45 years to life in prison in the beating death of her 3-year-old daughter in 2014.

Katlyn Marin was convicted in August of second-degree murder in the death of Brielle Gage, who died of blunt-force injuries during Thanksgiving week.

Marin had opted for a bench trial, meaning a judge, not a jury, determined her guilt. WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2ghx6Iw) she had faced a minimum of 35 years in prison, but prosecutors asked for a longer sentence.

Prosecutors said the 27-year-old Marin beat her daughter to death because she was angry that the girl had wet herself and that Brielle had gone into the kitchen at night in search of food. They said the girl had bruises from head to toe and suffered over 50 injuries.
