Longview Marine Sentenced To Prison

An Iraq war veteran is sentenced to prison after pleading guilty in the circumstances that led to the death of his daughter. Christopher Lewis was sentenced to life in prison yesterday. The 21-year-old plead guilty in the death of his two-year-old daughter in April. Investigators say Lewis' daughter died in a Dallas hospital from injuries she received when Lewis slammed her against a wall while trying to toilet train her.

Lewis, a U-S marine, was wounded in action while fighting in Fallujah in February. He must serve 40 years of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
