Former soldier Liam Culverhouse has been jailed for six years for causing his baby daughter's death.
His 19-month-old daughter Khloe Abrams died in November 2012 after suffering "multiple fractures to her skull, limbs and wrist" in an earlier assault.
The 25-year-old, who is expected to serve half of the sentence, had admitted causing the injuries eighteen months before she died in May 2011.
