COVINGTON, La. (AP) - A 44-year-old Louisiana woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for a toddler's death.

A news release says Trenique Faciane of Lacombe was sentenced Friday in St. Tammany Parish on a charge of manslaughter, which has a maximum sentence of 40 years. She was accused of hitting 22-month-old foster child Madison Parrott with a hairbrush, shaking her and dropping her into a bathtub in May 2015.

An autopsy found the child died from multiple trauma with bleeding on her brain. District Attorney Warren Montgomery notes that Faciane owned a daycare center at the time.

In February, she entered a plea that doesn't admit guilt but acknowledges that a judge or jury probably would have convicted her. District Judge Richard Swartz imposed the sentence.
