AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta father is going to have a long time to think about his crime of beating his young daughter to death.
22-year old Willie Clifford Jones was convicted of felony murder and sentenced to life without parole.
The beating happened in 2012. The Richmond County Sheriff's Office says Jones left bruises all over the body of 5-year old Tyasia Phillips. She died after spending a week in the hospital.
