A Houston woman accused of beating her four-month-old daughter “countless times” will spend life in prison for murder.
Tradezhia Bibbs, 29, was sentenced Monday after a second trial for the killing of Brielle Robinson.
The baby died at a hospital in April 2016 after authorities say Bibbs struck her several times at a motel to get her to stop crying.

Police accused Bibbs of picking up the girl and dropping her on a bed. The girl fell to the floor. Then came several blows to the chest, face and ribs.
"She beat her countless times,” KRIV-TV quoted Assistant District Attorney Keaton Forcht as saying during Bibbs’s trial.
Forcht added Bibbs “seemed to care about as much about the death of her daughter as she did about the life of her daughter."
Bibbs claimed the baby fell out of a car seat onto concrete. But police determined Robinson died from multiple fractures and severe head trauma.
Bibbs reportedly killed the baby because the girl’s father broke off their relationship.
Bibbs was tried a second time because an earlier conviction for capital murder was overturned on appeal.
