Machesney Park man sentenced in shaken baby case
The Machesney Man found guilty of shaking his infant son and leaving him in a permanent vegetative state will spend the next six-and-a-half years in prison, Judge John Truitt ruled Friday.
Matthew McNabb, 36, faced six to 30 years in prison when was convicted of aggravated battery of a child Nov. 25. Truitt referred to dozens of letters from family supporting McNabb when he handed down the sentence.
McNabb’s case stems from a Jan. 2006 incident when he shook his son, Tyler NcNabb, so hard, it caused permanent brain damage. The boy, now 8, is expected to remain comatose for the rest of his life.
McNabb was also ordered to serve three years of parole.
