SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A man accused in the death of a toddler in Brookings has been sentenced to 40 years behind bars.
Robert Price pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter earlier this month.
Back in 2019, authorities found the child confined to a small area where they also found human and animal feces. Investigators say the girl was deprived of food and human contact.
In September 2021, a judge sentenced Renae Fayant to 75 years behind bars. Fayant was the girl’s aunt.
