Father jailed for abuse of 2-month-old daughter


A 21-year-old Alma man will serve time in jail for abusing his daughter, who was 2 months old at the time of the February 2016 incident.

Dalton Howard was sentenced to eight to 10 years in jail with credit for 182 days served for attempt of a Class II felony, which was amended from intentional child abuse causing injury.

Police say the child was hospitalized for treatment of a brain bleed and bruising on her face and torso.

Court records say the baby's mother was in school when the baby was injured.
