SEASIDE, OR (KPTV) -

A Seaside man was sentenced to more than 35 years in prison for murdering his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter.

Randy Lee Roden was convicted on charges including murder, murder by abuse, first-degree manslaughter and first-degree criminal mistreatment in October.

He was arrested following the death of Evangelina Wing in December 2014.

Emergency crews responded to a Seaside apartment after receiving a 911 call about a child who wasn't breathing.

An autopsy determined Wing died of blunt force trauma and her death was ruled a homicide.

Roden was arrested, along with the girl's mother, Dorothy Wing. The couple lived together in the apartment.

Dorothy Wing pleaded guilty in January to charges of first-degree manslaughter for her daughter's death. She was sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison earlier this month.  

Roden was sentenced to 35 1/2 years in prison on Nov. 21.

Roden and Dorothy Wing were also convicted on charges connected to mistreatment of her two sons, who were 2 and 5 years old at the time.

A jury found Roden not guilty on charges of aggravated murder and sex abuse. The jury was also hung on an additional count of murder by abuse.

Roden will begin serving his sentence for murder after completing prison time in an unrelated case.
