A father accused of murdering his infant child pleaded guilty to a charge of injury to a child Friday.

Jacob Tanguma, 20, was sentenced to ten years in prison. His four month old daughter died at the hospital in November 2012 after paramedics rushed the infant from the Middleton Place Apartments.

Detectives report Tanguma admitted he was angry with the screaming child, grabbed her throat, and pushed down on her torso before they both eventually fell asleep on a couch.

Police say Tanguma told them he woke up with his hip pressed against the child's face and she was not breathing.
