Man sentenced for beating adopted daughter

A Toledo man has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for beating his adopted 3-year-old daughter.

Joshua Waxler, 25, entered an Alford plea last month to one count of child endangering.

The prosecutor says a family member videotaped Waxler beating and verbally abusing the girl after she placed paper in a vent at their home in east Toledo.

His wife will be sentenced next week. The couple's children are now being cared for by Lucas County children's services.
