INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis father will spend six years behind bars for the starvation death of his infant son.
Gregory Robey was sentenced Friday after previously pleading guilty to a felony count of neglect of a dependent.
Robey's son, 3-month-old Phillip, was malnourished and weighed only 5 pounds at the time of his death in November 2012.
The Riley Hospital for Children physician who examined the child said it was the worst case of starvation she had ever seen.
The child's mother, Bambi Glazebrook, 31, was originally charged with murder, but pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent in March.
Glazebrook was sentenced May 30 to 30 years in prison.
Glazebrook told investigators Phillip did not have a crib; instead, she kept him in a drawer.
The mother of the 9-year-old fatally shot in the face Monday said she has lots of questions on how the tragic incident happened.
