Idaho Man Sentenced for Beating Toddler to Death
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A Garden City man convicted last fall for beating to death the child of his girlfriend has been ordered to serve a life prison term. Fourth District Judge Patrick Owen sentenced 22-year-old Jordan Everhart to a life term Monday in the toddler's death.
Owen's sentence requires Everhart to serve at least 20 years before being eligible for parole. Everhart was convicted by a jury of first-degree murder of 18-month-old Alaija Corbin.
During the trial, Ada County prosecutors pointed out how the young girl died from a head wound, but also had fresh injuries to her feet, ankles and shins. Prosecutors say the injuries occurred on Oct. 8, 2011 when Everhart was watching the girl as her mother worked a double shift.
