Nealry two years after his arrest, a Perry County man charged with abusing his 4-month-old baby is sentenced to 20 years behind bars.

Coy Smith signed a plea agreement in March that would require him to serve 15 of those years behind bars, then one year in a community-corrections program, followed by four years of probation.

Smith was arrested in Tell City back in May of 2012 after his infant daughter was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Investigators say Smith had abused the baby.

The little girl named Ashlynn suffered a skull fracture and permanent brain damage.
