Batavia – An Ohio man accused of drowning his 4-month-old daughter in a river while she was strapped in her car seat has been sentenced to life in prison without parole.

Clermont County's prosecutor says 24-year-old Charles Crawford pleaded no contest to an aggravated murder charge and was sentenced on Friday in Batavia.

Authorities issued a state-wide alert July 31 for Kaylynn Crawford after Charles Crawford told them she was abducted from his car outside a store in Loveland. Investigators say Crawford later confessed to putting her in the river while she was strapped in her car seat.

Police say Crawford led them to the body along the Little Miami River in Miami Township on August 1.

Authorities haven't commented on a motive.

A message left for Crawford's attorney wasn't immediately returned.
