A FATHER has been handed a nine-year sentence for the manslaughter of his premature baby daughter.
Tyler Vallance, formerly of Engadine Road in Bromsgrove, was sentenced today (Friday) for causing the death of his daughter Isabella.
He was also given an 18-month term for GBH, to run at the same time, by Judge Robert Juckes QC at Worcester Crown Court.
Vallance pleaded guilty to GBH and manslaughter earlier this year while Isabella’s mother Jessica Wiggins, formerly of Heathfield Road in Redditch, was found guilty last month of allowing the death of her child.
She was given a nine month sentence, suspended for 12 months, and a 12-month supervision order meaning she will not serve time in prison unless another offence is committed within the next year.
