Kylor Smith-Sims sentenced in court today

A Ridgecrest man was sentenced to 12 years and four months in prison for the death of his infant son Tuesday.

Sims was arrested in 2012 after his 10-week-old son Travion died.

Police said Travion's injuries were the equivalent of being dropped from a three-story building.

Sims was charged with first-degree murder, but pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in a deal.
