A jury has ordered 20 years in prison for a Seguin man convicted over the 2007 death of his girlfriend's less than month-old daughter. A Guadalupe County jury on Tuesday night acquitted 34-year-old Michael League of capital murder, but convicted him of reckless injury to a child using a deadly weapon, his hands.

Jurors on Wednesday rejected a defense plea for probation and ordered 20 years in prison for League over the death of 27-day-old Kyndra Billig.

A police affidavit indicates League says he shook the baby when she wouldn't stop crying and then tossed her on an ottoman. An autopsy determined the girl suffered blunt force trauma to the head.
