A South Korean woman was sentenced to a 10-year prison term on Friday for allegedly beating her 8-year-old stepdaughter to death.

The 36-year-old woman, surnamed Lim, is accused of punching and kicking the young girl multiple times in August 2013. The girl died from peritonitis two days after the incident took place.

The Daegu District Court also handed down a three-year jail term to the girl’s father, identified by his last name Kim, for abusing his child.
