MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A judge is set to sentence a Madison father accused of locking his teenage daughter in the basement and starving her down to 68 pounds.
A jury convicted the man of child abuse and other charges in November. Another jury found the 42-year-old man guilty of felony child neglect in March. He faces up to $55,000 in fines and 28 years in prison when he's sentenced Wednesday afternoon.
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 her.
The Associated Press isn't naming anyone in the family to avoid identifying the girl.
