Former MLB pitcher Sergio Mitre is going to jail for a long time—40 to 60 years, to be exact—after he was convicted of raping and murdering his ex-partner’s infant daughter.

Mitre was convicted of femicide of the 22-month-old girl, Ines, after his July 2020 arrest and trial. He was sentenced Wednesday.

The 41-year-old pitched for four different teams in the bigs between 2003 and 2011: the Chicago Cubs, Florida Marlins, New York Yankees, and Milwaukee Brewers. He was on the Yankees’ 2009 World Series-winning team.

Mitre, who also pitched in Japan and Mexico, was previously charged with domestic assault of a different romantic partner in 2019 but avoided prison after paying a 20,000 peso (about $976) fine.
