MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Judge sentences Wisconsin father accused of starving daughter to 5 years in prison.


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A father accused of locking his teenage daughter in the basement of their Madison home and starving her faces sentencing.

A jury convicted the 42-year-old father of child abuse and other charges in November. He was also found guilty of felony child neglect in March.

He faces a maximum sentence of 28 years in prison when he's sentenced Wednesday afternoon in Dane County.

The girl's stepmother was sentenced in July to five years in prison for reckless endangerment and causing mental harm to a child. Her stepbrother is set to stand trial in February on allegations he sexually abused the teen, who at one time weighed just 68 pounds.

The Associated Press isn't naming anyone in the family to avoid identifying the girl.
