      A man has been jailed for life for beating a two-year-old girl to death while her mother was in New York celebrating her 21st birthday.
      Ben Raftery, 21, "forcibly and repeatedly punched" Roxie Jo-Anne Archer in March 2012 while looking after her in Ashton-under-Lyne.
      Manchester Crown Court heard Raftery's girlfriend Sophie Archer had been taken to the US as a surprise by her father.
      Raftery was told he would serve a minimum of 18 years in prison.
      During his trial the jury heard Raftery, who was not the child's father, dialled 999 at 00:30 GMT to say he had left a stair gate open and that Roxie had fallen down the stairs.

      18 years is nothing compared to what he has taken. Some people are so cruel.

      I agree WG, it's ridiculous how many get missed and then you end up with tragedies like this.

      He definitely deserved it Naiwen I agree however in my honest opinion people like him deserve more than life in prison and he definitely will not do life that's for sure as stated above. 18 years is nothing compared to a little girls life taken.
