Richland County, SC (WLTX) - A man who killed a baby he was in charge of taking care of has been sentenced to 23 years in prison.
Antwan Gaddist plead guilty Friday to a charge of homicide by child abuse on the fourth day of a trial against him.
The judge in the case then handed down the sentence.
Back in May of 2011, Gaddist was left in charge of one-year-old Kaitlynn Hill while the girl's mother went to work. Richland County deputies say the child suffered extensive bruises to her body and face while under his care.
The child was taken to the hospital for treatment, and died several days later.
