MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A man and his girlfriend, who were convicted in the death of the woman's 4-year-old daughter, learned their fates Friday, Oct. 9.

Jerome Millen and Christina Collado appeared in court for their sentencing hearings.

Millen was sentenced to 45 years in prison for the death of Autumn Horak -- that's 30 years in initial confinement and 15 years of extended supervision. 

At Friday's hearing, prosecution described the lengthy abuse Autumn suffered at the hands of Millen, while Collado did little to stop it.

Autumn's biological father was also at the hearing.

"They ruined more than one life, they ruined so many people's who she was their first grandchild, first niece, first nephew, so many people confused, so many kids her age, and I just don't feel like 45 years is enough," said Kyle Horak, Autumn's biological father.

Christine Collado appeared for her sentencing separately. 

She will go to prison for 10 years.
