Ex-soldier convicted of killing daughter sentenced

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a former Fort Campbell soldier convicted of killing his daughter to 30 years in prison.

The Kentucky New Era (http://bit.ly/Hwh6A2) reports Christian Circuit Judge Andrew Self handed down the sentence on Wednesday for 24-year-old Charles Timothy Morris.

A jury in western Kentucky took less than 90 minutes to convict Morris last month of murder in the death of his 3-year-old daughter, Alayna Adair, and the panel recommended the 30-year sentence.

Alayna died July 2, 2011 of blunt force trauma to the head.

Morris has maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.
