Man Sentenced In Baby Death

The Kansas Supreme Court has reversed the "Hard 50" murder sentence of a Wichita man but refused to rule whether changes made by legislators to the law in 2013 can be applied.
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.
