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.
