CICERO – Jorge Galvez, 24, of Cicero, was sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to murdering his three-week-old daughter and trying to find someone to kill his girlfriend's family, according to a Cook County State's Attorney news release.

Galvez plead guilty to the March 2010 incident Wednesday in the Maywood Courthouse, according to the release. The sentences, which will run consecutively, are 20 years for the murder and 10 years for conspiracy to commit murder.

Galvez had thrown the baby, Liliana Galvez, into her crib after the baby would not stop crying during the early morning hours, the release stated.

The baby's head struck the crib and she became unresponsive, according to the release.

While on trial for murder, a law enforcement investigation revealed that Galvez wanted to hire someone to kill some of his girlfriend’s relatives, who he believed were trying to turn her against him, according to the release.
