ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Alamo man convicted of voluntary manslaughter in the death of an infant has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Federal prosecutors say 31-year-old Kalvest Ganadonegro will be on supervised released once he completes the prison sentence.
According to a criminal complaint, Ganadonegro shook a 10-month-old infant that he had been babysitting in 2008, killing her.
Prosecutors say the shaking happened on two occasions, leading to brain injuries.
Ganadonegro's first trial resulted in mistrial.
He was found guilty earlier this year of voluntary manslaughter, and acquitted on charges of second-degree murder and negligent child abuse resulting in death.
The sentence came Thursday in federal court.
