TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio father whose newborn infant was found dead in a freezer has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

The baby's mother already is serving a life sentence for killing the child.

A judge in Toledo sentenced Antonio Cervantes on Tuesday.

The baby's mother testified earlier this year that she gave birth in January 2012 and held the baby under water in the bathtub.

She said Cervantes then gave her a shoelace that she wrapped around the newborn's neck.

A landlord found the baby boy's body a few months later while cleaning out a freezer in the apartment.
