(PORTLAND) - An eastern Indiana man convicted of killing his girlfriend's 5-week-old daughter by slamming her head into pavement has been sentenced to 65 years in prison.

The 22-year-old Dalton R. Davis of Jay County didn't speak at Wednesday's sentencing hearing, which he participated in via a video link from the Jay County Jail.

The (Muncie) Star Press reports Jay Circuit Judge Brian Hutchison said he had "never seen anything as senseless or barbaric" as the death of Lillian Grace Lloyd last Sept. 28.

Davis, who was not the baby's father, told police he was angry at the child's mother at the time. An autopsy showed Lillian likely died instantly from massive head injuries.

Davis pleaded guilty to murder last month after the state agreed not to seek life without parole.
