WLNS.com reports that Thomas McClellan has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty in the murder of his 5-year old stepdaughter.

Last November, McClellan stabbed his stepdaughter, Luna Younger, after she woke him from a nap to say she was hungry. McClellan then set their Holt apartment on fire in an attempt to cover up his crime.

McClellan will serve life in prison without parole after being found guilty of murder, arson, and child abuse.
