OGDEN — A man accused of strangling a baby girl with a sock was sentenced to 15 years up to life in prison Thursday.

Trevor Thomas Grover, 28, appeared in 2nd District Court to be sentenced on one count of first-degree murder.

Grover pleaded guilty to the charge last March as part of a plea deal struck with prosecutors. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to send a letter to the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole, recommending that Grover serve no more than 17 years in prison for the crime.

Grover is accused of strangling 3-month-old Arouralee Randles, who was his former girlfriend's child, with a sock at a Washington Terrace home in November 2006. Police were called to the home on a call of a child found not breathing. The child later died at a hospital.
