A father who murdered his missing five-year-old daughter refused a final chance to reveal where her body is, in exchange for a lesser jail sentence.

Adam Montgomery, 34, was sentenced to 45 years to life in prison on Thursday afternoon for killing his child Harmony Montgomery, who vanished in 2021.

Prosecutors said that Montgomery murdered his daughter and put her body in the trunk of his car, in a homeless shelter ceiling vent, and in the walk-in freezer of a restaurant he worked at. The dad disposed her body in March 2020.

A prosecutor offered to reduce the ask to 35 years to life if Montgomery confessed ‘where to recover’ Montgomery’s remains.

But the convicted father did not say anything.

‘There is nothing minimal about the crimes that he is being convicted for today,’ said the prosecutor, according to CBS News.

‘He has just yet shown you again in this courtroom and for anybody else that he is heartless, immoral, selfish and an unapologetic murderer of his own child.’

Montgomery’s defense lawyer, Caroline Smith, labeled the state’s offer a ‘stunt’.
