FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - A Coconino County man faces 46 years in prison after being sentenced in the child abuse death of his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter.

Superior Court Judge Dan Slayton sentenced 26-year-old Jose Zenaido Acevedo to two consecutive 23-year sentences stemming from the October 2012 death of 2-year-old Victoria Rodriguez.

Sheriff's deputies found the girl unconscious when they responded to a call for help at the mother's home.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that Acevedo had been watching the child while her mother was at work.

The coroner determined abusive head trauma caused the girl's death.

Acevedo was convicted of second-degree murder and child abuse. He was sentenced Wednesday.
