Dad Who Starved Daughter To Be Sentenced

MADISON, Wis. - A father convicted of locking his teenage daughter in the basement of their Wisconsin home and starving her faces sentencing.

The 42-year-old Madison father was convicted of child abuse and other charges in November. He was also found guilty of felony child neglect in March. At one point the teen weighed just 68 pounds.

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. The girl's stepbrother is set to stand trial in February to face accusations that he sexually abused the teen.

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