HOPKINSVILLE, KY. — A judge has sentenced a former Fort Campbell soldier convicted of killing his daughter to 30 years in prison.

The Kentucky New Era reports Christian Circuit Judge Andrew Self handed down the sentence on Wednesday for 24-year-old Charles Timothy Morris.

A jury in western Kentucky took less than 90 minutes to convict Morris last month of murder in the death of his 3-year-old daughter, Alayna Adair, and the panel recommended the 30-year sentence.

Alayna died July 2, 2011 of blunt force trauma to the head.

Morris has maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings.
