The man responsible for the death of two-year-old Destiny Tincher learned his fate Friday.

A jury convicted Jeffery Noble of manslaughter instead of the original charge of murder.

The manslaughter conviction does not require as much jail time as murder which has caused even more pain for Destiny's family.

The Breathitt County Circuit Court Judge sentenced Noble to ten years.

Patty Smith, Destiny Tincher's aunt, says that sentence does not fit the crime or all the pain her family is going through.

"Words can't describe the pain that my family is in and will always be in. We have lost one of our most precious family members, and she is gone and we can't never get that back," said Smith.

Smith says they will be going to the parole board to try to keep him in prison for his full sentence.

Noble has already served about a year of that ten year sentence.

His family was not around after the sentencing to comment.
