Couple Sentenced For Killing Toddler

A Madison County couple now knows how long they'll have to spend in prison for killing a two-year-old girl.

On Monday morning, a judge sentenced Ronnie Crabtree to 45 years, while Verona Brinegar received a 35 year sentence.

Police say Brinegar's daughter, Callie, was suffocated last summer.

A jury found Crabtree and Brinegar guilty of murder and criminal abuse earlier this month.

Both will be eligible for parole after serving 85 percent of their sentence.
