NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A father accused of killing his infant daughter pleaded guilty Wednesday in a New Hanover County courtroom.
Dyrell Tindall was charged with second degree murder in the death of his daughter, Samya.
According to investigators, the 3-month-old died from shaken baby syndrome. Tindall said he shook Samya because she was choking and was not responsive.
Tindall has already spent 20 months in prison and will likely spend another 130 months behind bars.
