Man sentenced to prison for beating toddler

LAWTON, Okla._A man has been sentenced to prison for beating a toddler because the girl soiled herself.

Court documents show Cornelius Alexander took the child to a neighbor's house in May 2014. He said she fell off a counter and hurt herself. Alexander told the neighbor he had warrants and could not be there when emergency crews arrived.

The child was taken to a hospital in Oklahoma City with two brain bleeds, a fractured arm and internal injuries. Authorities later found Alexander in the Oklahoma County Jail, where he was being held on unrelated charges.

He admitted to investigators that he yanked the girl out of a chair, causing her to hit her head on the floor and bleed from her mouth.

Alexander also said he suspected the child swallowed some cocaine that he left on a counter. In addition, he said the girl was once attacked by one of his pit bulls and he did not seek medical treatment for her.

Alexander pleaded guilty to one count of child abuse. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison.
