HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The father of a disabled girl who died after she was scalded in a bathtub was convicted of murder for failing to seek medical help for her for more than a week.

Shawn Lockett Sr. could face up to 40 years in prison after being convicted Wednesday of third-degree murder, conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child. Sentencing was set for July 24.

Ten-year-old Quiniece Lockett, who had cerebral palsy and was blind and partially paralyzed, was burned in April 2007 after her father's companion, LaShawn Brown, placed her in a scalding bath.
