INDIANAPOLIS -

An Indianapolis man was sentenced to 45 years in the beating death of his young daughter last year.

Last July, Wayne Bradshaw of Indianapolis told police he "lost it" when he discovered his 18-month-old daughter had a dirty diaper. He told police that's when he squeezed and shook her - after initially saying she'd fallen and had stopped breathing.

The coroner found the baby had internal injuries along with bruises all over her body.

On Thursday, Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry announced that Bradshaw will be sent to prison for 35 years, with an additional 10 years of suspended time in connection with the girl's death. The sentence is per a plea agreement in which Bradshaw admitted to the fatal neglect of his daughter.

The victim and two other children were home alone with Bradshaw, their biological father, at the time of the death.

Dr. Tara Harris, a board-certified child abuse pediatrician, testified during the sentencing hearing that the child suffered significant hemorrhaging and trauma to her body.

Bradshaw will not be allowed to have any contact with children who are not biologically his during his sentence. He'll also serve an additional five years of probation.
