Couple charged in daughter's death convicted of manslaughter

Kentucky State Police say a Fleming County couple has been convicted of Manslaughter for the death of their three-month-old daughter.

Police say the jury recommended 32-year-old Terry Buchanan serve 20 years, and 23-year-old Jessica Allen serve 10 years. They'll be formally sentenced on September 17.
