LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) – A Georgia man has entered a plea in his toddler daughter’s starvation death in 2014.
  
News outlets reported 48-year-old Calvin Mcintosh entered an Alford plea in Gwinnett County Court on Tuesday to felony murder and three counts of child cruelty.

An Alford plea does not admit guilt, but concedes there is enough evidence for a conviction.
  
Judge Melodie Conner sentenced Mcintosh to life in prison, with the chance of parole after 30 years, plus 30 years of probation.
  
Investigators say Mcintosh went to a Sandy Springs hospital in 2014 with his 15-month daughter, Alcenti, and said the girl was not breathing. She was pronounced dead.
  
Prosecutor Rich Vandever said charges of starving and false imprisonment of the baby’s mother, Iasia Sweeting, were dropped as part of the plea agreement.
