    CLARKSVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A man is to serve life in prison for the stabbing death of a 6-year-old girl in Johnson County.

    Jurors on Thursday convicted 22-year-old Kou Her of first-degree murder, attempted kidnapping and a number of other charges related to the May 16 death of Autumn Vang.

    Her was sentenced to two life terms, plus 47 years.

    Authorities described Her as a distant relative to Vang. Investigators said Her broke into a home where the girl was staying Hartman early May 10.

    The Southwest Times Record reports Her used a pair of scissors to stab Autumn in the head as she slept and then attempted to kidnap a juvenile female living at the home.

    Autumn died six days later at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock.
