Iowa man gets life for murder

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A Waterloo man found guilty of killing his girlfriend’s daughter has been sentenced to life in prison.

Chad Allen Little, 35, was sentenced Tuesday. A jury convicted him in May of the first-degree murder of 4-year-old Gracie Buss.

Prosecutors say Little abused his girlfriend’s two children, and delivered a fatal head injury to Gracie in May 2015.

Gracie’s mother, Kristi Amber Buss, is awaiting trial on a child endangerment charge.
