    A Tarrant County jury Wednesday sentenced a man to life behind bars for the brutal attack on a little girl who was beaten so badly as she walked to her school bus stop she required a heart transplant to save her life.

    Terry Wayne King, a truck driver, was found guilty of assault causing bodily injury to a child and attempted aggravated kidnapping on Tuesday.

    The girl, who was 12-years-old at the time of the 2018 attack, appeared in court Monday where she came face-to-face with King and said he was a "bad man."

    Police said the vicious attack near the school bus stop was unprovoked and the motive was unknown.
