Ohio pastor sentenced in foster child's death

Dayton (AP) - An Ohio pastor has been sentenced to 18 years to life after a jury convicted him of murder in his foster son's death.

The Dayton Daily News reports 38-year-old Torace Weaver was sentenced Friday on charges related to the death of 2-year-old Stanley Thomas III.

His wife, 40-year-old Shureka Weaver, was sentenced to 36 months for child endangering.

Prosecutors say she failed to get Stanley treatment for a severe burn.

Torace Weaver's attorney says an appeal is planned.

Shureka Weaver's attorney didn't return telephone messages.

Torace Weaver told police Stanley slipped off a table and hit his head while playing "Superman" at a Dayton church in November 2015.

A coroner said Stanley died of a catastrophic skull fracture and had numerous blunt force injuries and disfiguring burns.
