A Columbus Junction father who caused the death of his baby girl learned his fate today.

In January four-month-old Marleen Jimenez of Columbus Junction, Iowa, died from severe head trauma at the University of Iowa Hospital.

The child's father, Oscar Jimenez, was arrested the day after the injured child was brought to the hospital. He later pleaded guilty to 2nd degree murder and multiple acts of child endangerment.

On Friday a Louisa County judge sentenced Jimenez to 50 years in prison on both counts, to run consecutively.
