Ada man accused of murdering daughter pleads no contest

ADA, OK - A Pontotoc County man accused of beating his one-year-old daughter to death has pleaded no contest.

20-year-old Riley Walker was charged with first degree murder in October after authorities found Walker's 14-month-old daughter, Jalissa, unresponsive inside their Ada home.

Prosecutors said Walker entered a blind plea, which means he will not receive the death penalty.

In exchange, the district attorney's office said they will ask for a sentence of life behind bars without the possibility of parole.

Walker is scheduled to be sentenced on June 7th.
