UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A Maryland man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for fatally shooting a 3-year-old girl in Landover in 2014.

The Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office says 27-year-old Davon Wallace was sentenced Wednesday. Wallace was found guilty in November of second-degree murder in the death of Knijah Bibb.

Prosecutors say on Aug. 10, 2014, Wallace got into an argument with residents of the home he was staying in about stolen clothes. Wallace was beaten by the two men he was arguing with.

Authorities say Wallace left the home and returned, firing multiple shots into the home. One of the shots struck and killed the child.

Wallace testified that he didn’t intend to kill anyone and simply wanted to scare the people inside the home who had beaten him.
