FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -

A 40-year-old Tarrant County man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for performing sex acts on his 3-month-old daughter.

A Tarrant County jury Wednesday deliberated 45 minutes before deciding on the maximum sentence for Christopher Miller of White Settlement. A day earlier, the same jury convicted him of four counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child under 6.

Evidence showed Miller was addicted to pornography and had been working with his church to resolve his addiction. Evidence showed he performed deviant sex acts on his infant daughter, including taking photos.

During the punishment phase of his trial, evidence showed he also performed sex acts on his then-infant son.

Miller told his church what he was doing and child welfare authorities were notified, leading to his arrest.
