WELLINGTON, Kan. (KAKE) -

A Wellington man has been sentenced to just over five years in prison for the death of his son's mother.

Bradley Aue was sentenced Thursday to 61 months for voluntary manslaughter. Sumner NewsCow reports he's already served 14 months. 

Aue was originally charged with second-degree murder in the May 2018 death of 26-year-old Sierra Craft-McGee. A jury found him guilty of the lesser charge last month.

He was accused of intentionally killing Craft-McGee without premeditation at his home on 1002 South F Street by “striking her multiple times causing severe blunt force injuries including a nasal fracture, severe black eyes, multiple abrasions and contusions to her head, trunk and extremities.”

A criminal complaint also states that Aue pushed Craft-McGee into a window, severing and artery and causing lacerations throughout her body, and failing to timely obtain medical treatment for her.
