ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A former Artesia High School football star has been sentenced to 18 years behind bars for the death of his 4-month-old daughter.
In December 2007, 28 year old Robert Flores, 28, put his young daughter in a full laundry basket and put the laundry basket in a closet for hours while he went to buy beer.
The baby's mother found the baby's body hours later.
Prosecutors initially accused Flores of intentionally suffocating the child, but the judge said he did not believe that.
He was found guilty in February of negligent child abuse resulting in death and tampering with evidence.
An appeal is planned.
