Brandon Bishop jailed for 20 years for punching and suffocating 'spoiled princess' stepdaughter aged two... to 'toughen her up'

A stepfather who admitted repeatedly punching, suffocating, dropping and kicking his wife's two-year-old daughter has been sentenced to up to 20 years in jail.

Brandon Bishop, 25, was given ten to 20 years in prison for the lengthy assaults on two-year-old Kamryn Hummel who he believed was a spoiled princess and 'needed to be toughened up'.

In a video played for the court, Bishop showed a police detective how he kicked, punched, choked and dropped the girl after picking her up by her hair at the family's home in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The girl's mother Candace Watts, 22, admitted to knowing about the assaults and failing to alert police.

Watts was also sentenced yesterday to between 18 months and seven years in prison. Read More
