Wichita man sentenced in death of toddler

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A Wichita man arrested and charged in the death of a 2-year-old girl was sentenced Wednesday.

Sly Maples will spend more than 11 years in jail. Maples claimed that his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter was accidentally hurt when she fell from the slide at Linwood Park.

Prosecutors say 2-year-old Avery Darnell died from injuries she suffered at the hands of Maples.

Last month, Maples was found not guilty of first-degree murder but guilty of abuse of a child.
