Man gets 50 years for beating to death a 16-month-old
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A man has been given 50 years in prison for beating to death the 16-month-old daughter of his girlfriend in western Iowa.
An autopsy showed the toddler had suffered numerous injuries and died of blunt force trauma. Prosecutors say Jennings was supposed to be baby-sitting the girl in Council Bluffs.
Jennings repeated earlier statements that he didn’t kill Jazlynn. His attorney says Jennings will continue appealing the verdict and sentence.
