— A northwest Missouri man was sentenced to prison for sexually abusing a young girl and then plotting with his daughter to have the victim killed.

Doyle Brant, 70, was sentenced Monday to 25 years for statutory rape and statutory sodomy, to be followed by 13 years for conspiracy to commit murder.

Brant confessed in November to sexually abusing the girl. He also admitted he conspired with his daughter, Alesia Rivera, to kill the girl after he was jailed in Buchanan County.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports the victim testified that the abuse began when she was about 11 years old.

Rivera pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy to commit murder and agreed to testify against her father. She was sentenced to seven years in prison.
