Michigan man sentenced in drowning death of toddler

Crime

MIDLAND, Mich. (AP) — A 24-year-old Michigan man has been sentenced between 25 and 50 years in prison for the drowning death of a 19-month-old girl.

Damian Garrett accepted a plea agreement in July.

He appeared in court Friday to be sentenced on a second-degree murder charge for the death of Skylar Pappel, who died last year when Garrett was giving the girl a bath at her mother’s apartment in Midland.

Garrett had been in a relationship with the child’s mother.

Garrett apologized in court on Friday and said he was remorseful.
