A Plymouth man loses his appeal of his sentence in a 2-year-old's death.

Shane Weedling argued his sentence was inappropriate based on the crime and his character.

An appeals court rejected both claims siting several previous convictions and his comments since pleading guilty.

A Marshall County court sentenced him to 65-years in prison for beating 2-year-old Serenity Wilson to death with a hairbrush in a hotel room in 2015.

Her mother was sentenced to 37-years in prison for neglect.
