CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) -- A southwest Missouri man was sentenced to prison Monday in the death of his 11-month-old son, who died after drinking chemicals used in making methamphetamine.
Dennis Doubet, of Carthage, pleaded guilty in December to involuntary manslaughter and possession of drug chemicals.
Doubet was sentenced by a Jasper County judge to seven years for manslaughter and four years for the drug charge, with the sentences to run concurrently.
Doubet's son, Zarrin, died in September 2002 after drinking from a soda bottle that contained ingredients used in methamphetamine. The father admitted leaving the chemicals, which included Coleman fuel, in the 2-liter bottle.
