MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A 19-year-old Kansas man has been sentenced to nearly 27 years in prison for his role in the death of a 6-month-old boy.
KMAN reports Michael Dechant of Ogden was sentenced Monday for second-degree murder in the shaking death earlier this year of his girlfriend's son.
Prosecutors say Dechant violently shook Dominick Lubrano on March 15. The baby died three days later.
Dechant's girlfriend, Sabrina Lubrano, has said she left Dominick briefly with Dechant to run an errand. Lubrano said she returned to find a neighbor trying to revive her baby with CPR.
