A man who shook a 10-month-old girl to death was sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.
Jason Cruz of Corona was sentenced Friday in Riverside County
Superior Court on a charge of second-degree murder and other
Prosecutors said he attacked Alanna Villareal, his girlfriend's daughter, in 2004. She suffered brain injuries and broken bones.
At the sentencing, the girl's father wept and called Cruz a coward who took away his daughter. He added: "All I have is a handful of pictures."
