Estevan Adrian Garcia and Sacora Rose Horn-Garcia, found guilty last month of murdering their 5-year-old daughter by starvation, were sentenced Monday in Deschutes County Circuit Court to life in prison with parole possible in 25 years.

Maliyha Hope Garcia died Dec. 21, 2016, weighing 24 pounds at autopsy.

The Redmond couple were arrested several months later. Their joint trial lasted five weeks before a jury returned unanimous verdicts after five hours of deliberation.
