A Grand Forks man will serve 20 years in prison for shaking his infant daughter, almost killing her.

Steven Klein was sentenced today on the child abuse charge.

Authorities say he shook his four-week-old daughter. The baby's mother was out of the home, and when she returned she found the child unresponsive.

The baby was air-lifted to a Fargo hospital with severe head injuries.

In addition to the 20 years in prison, Klein must serve five years of probation, register as an offender against children, and pay more than $389,000 dollars.
