MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Wisconsin man accused of starving and torturing his teenage daughter has been convicted of child neglect, but jurors couldn't reach a verdict on several other charges.
A jury on Friday found the 41-year-old Madison man guilty of felony child neglect. Jurors couldn't reach a unanimous decision on the four other felonies he faced.
The Associated Press isn't naming him to avoid identifying the girl, who says she was sexually assaulted by her stepbrother. He's been charged separately.
The now-16-year-old girl says her father kept her locked in the basement. She says she was denied food and endured years of physical abuse. She weighed 68 pounds when she fled the family's home 13 months ago.
Her father's defense attorneys say the girl chose not to dress appropriately or eat well.19342266
