PHOENIX (AP) - The father of a 10-year-old Arizona girl who authorities say died when another relative locked her in a small plastic trunk for hours was sentenced Thursday to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempted child abuse.

David Deal wasn't charged in the July 2011 death of his daughter Ame Deal in Phoenix. Instead, the 53-year-old admitted abusing her on several occasions between March 2010 and July 2011, including at least once stuffing her into the trunk and tossing it into a pool as punishment.
