HIGHLANDS COUNTY, Fla. – Ivan Sanders was found guilty and sentenced to Life in prison for First Degree Murder and Aggravated Child Abuse.

Sanders was watching the 4-year-old victim while her mother was at work, according to the State Attorney’s Office.

Sanders threw the child across the room, hitting her head on the floor, causing her skull to fracture and her brain to swell.

Sanders delayed taking the victim to the hospital after trying to revive her in a bath.

In addition to the skull fracture, the victim had severe bruising on her entire body and a burn on her hand.

“State Attorney Brian Haas thanks Assistant State Attorney John Kromholz and the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office for their persistence in pursuing justice in this case. Sanders will never be released from prison,” said the SAO’s office.
