Man Sentenced In Baby Death

Associated Press - December 10, 2013 9:00 am

A Kansas prosecutor says the death penalty "is on the table" in the case of two people who investigators say fled to Mexico as suspects in a triple homicide last October.

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.

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.
