GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Green Bay man has been sentenced to six years in prison for abusing his girlfriend’s baby daughter who later died.
30-year-old Daniel Vega must also spend 6 years under extended supervision once he leaves prison.
According to authorities, Vega claimed that 13-month-old Lilly Tebeau fell from a bed in August of last year. But doctors said the injuries did not match the claim – and she had a skull fracture and severe head trauma.
Two months ago, a jury convicted Vega of two felony child abuse charges. But they acquitted him of reckless homicide.
Vega again proclaimed his innocence Wednesday, saying, “I never harmed that child.”
A woman yelled that Vega was a liar, and Brown County Circuit Judge William Atkinson had her removed from the courtroom.
