Parents Convicted in Death of 2-year-old Daughter
LYNWOOD(KTLA) -- A Lynwood couple was sentenced today for the beating death of their 2-year old daughter.

Miriam Abrego, 25, was sentenced to a prison term of 17 years to life.

The childÂ’s father, Michael Lara-Morales, 24, was sentenced to 20 years in state prison.

Abrego pleaded no contest to second-degree murder and child abuse.

Lara-Morales pleaded no contest to one count of voluntary manslaughter, three counts of child abuse and admitted allegations that he inflicted great bodily injury on the child, identified as Abigail.

Sheriffs investigators said the 2-year-old sustained multiple injuries at a residence in the 2900 block of Oakwood Avenue last July.

According to the report, the girl's parents didn't call 911 until the next day when she was in full cardiac arrest.

The 2-year-old had visible bruises all over her body in various stages of healing, prosecutors said.

She was taken off life support several days later.
