Outrage at the sentence handed down to a father who killed his two year-old daughter.
Kefu Ikamanu got six years and nine months in prison, after being found guilty of manslaughter.
He threw his daughter against a wall and stomped on her, she died in hospital after battling for eight months.
Child advocate Christine Rankin says it was murder not manslaughter, and Ikamanu should have a longer sentence.
"The kind of message a judge gives is that six years is all that child's life is worth, is absolutely appalling."
Christine Rankin says a charge of manslaughter lets child abusers like Kefu Ikamanu off the hook.
