Dos Palos man gets 15 to life in prison for daughter's murder

MERCED, Calif.

The Merced County Coroner says the little girl died from multiple blunt force trauma to the head. The girl also had bruises around her shoulders and torso. Detectives say Wright threw the child against a shower wall in his Dos Palos home and then left her alone for hours.

Wright pleaded no contest to the child's death to avoid a trial. His attorneys say he did not harm the child.
