Oklahoma man sentenced to life in prison for drowning his toddler daughter
McALESTER, Okla. – A southeast Oklahoma man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for the drowning of his 21-month-old daughter.
Court records show 23-year-old Devin Sizemore of Krebs was sentenced Wednesday in Pittsburg County District Court for the death of Emily Sizemore after the judge denied a request for a new trial.
Court documents said police were searching for Sizemore and the girl when they found the two in the early morning hours of July 14, 2016 in a pond near Krebs.
Police said the girl was floating face down and Sizemore fought with officers who pulled the child from the water.
