JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man who pleaded no contest in the death of a 16-month-old girl is going to prison.

A judge Friday sentenced Torey Leonard Jenkins, 37, to 40 years in prison for the death of Destiny Patterson.

The girl's mother came home from nursing school and found her daughter not breathing. Doctors later discovered she suffered multiple blows to her head, causing severe brain injuries that led to her death.
