WASHINGTON — A man who fatally shot his 13-year-old daughter in the head has been sentenced to 70 years in prison.

Forty-one-year-old Robert Carter pleaded guilty in October to first-degree murder while armed in the slaying of his daughter, Angel Morse. He was sentenced on Friday.

Prosecutors say on Oct. 29, 2010, Carter went to his former girlfriend’s home, took his daughter to the basement and shot her.

Carter also held several people, including children, against their will in the home. When his ex-girlfriend arrived at the home, Carter pointed a gun at her and a 10-year-old boy lunged at Carter.
