A man accused of suffocating his two month old son as they slept in the same bed has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison.

Kyle Kempton, 34, was sentenced Tuesday to thirty-two months in prison for involuntary manslaughter and four counts of misdemeanor counts of endangering a child.

The Wichita Eagle reports Kempton and his wife, Christy Rollings, 39, had been drinking for a week before their son, Patrick Kempton, died in a Wichita motel in August.  A twin brother was not injured.

Rollings was sentenced to probation for manslaughter and two years for endangerment charges.
