A young Chandler father will spend more than three decades in prison in the death of his infant daughter.

Judge Pamela Svoboda sentenced Sergio Thomas to 36 years in prison for second-degree murder, two counts of attempted child abuse and lifetime probation. The sentence is a part of a plea deal.

Chandler police said Sergio Thomas was booked into jail after paramedics and police were called to a residence where they found a little girl unresponsive.

The 7-month-old was transported to a local hospital where medical staff determined she had a skull fracture and bleeding on the brain.

The child was later taken to Phoenix Children's Hospital in critical condition and died hours later.
