Upshur County Man Sentenced For Injury To Daughter

A man accused of beating his 18-month-old daughter while changing her diaper has been sentenced in Upshur County District Court. The court gave 34-year-old Matthew Patrick Reid eight years in prison and an $8,000 fine. Reid claimed he had spanked the girl because she wouldn’t cooperate while she was being changed. Officials had previously charged Reid in 2012 in another county. It was for breaking another one of his children’s femur, a three-day-old, while also in the process of changing a diaper.
