Ohio dad who gave adult sleep aid to 16-month-old daughter sentenced to 3 years in her death

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, June 6, 2014 7:33 AM EDT

A western Ohio father whose 16-month-old daughter died after he gave her an adult sleep aid has been sentenced to three years in prison after a judge convicted him of involuntary manslaughter.

Twenty-nine-year-old Scott Webber was sentenced in Greenville on Thursday. He had declined to take a plea deal and could have faced up to 14 years in prison.

His daughter, Ina Jane, was found dead in her crib in February 2013, tangled in a scarf used as a blanket. The autopsy showed she died of asphyxiation and had been given ZzzQuil, which is not intended for children under 12 years old.

The child's mother, 29-year-old Lauren Jones, pleaded guilty to child endangering as part of a plea deal that required her to testify against her husband.
