Dad gets 14 years for death of 2-month-old son (Bridgeton, New Jersey)

Yet another case where Daddy killed an infant while "caring" for him...and no mention of a mother in the home. Just a grandmother.

Dad gets just 14 years for the baby's death...fewer years than many mothers get for "failing" to protect their babies from guys like this.

Dad is identified as RONALD CUFF JR.

BRIDGETON, N.J. (AP) — A southern New Jersey father convicted of fatally injuring his infant son in 2011 has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison.

The Cumberland County prosecutor's office says 20-year-old Ronald Cuff Jr. of Vineland was sentenced Friday to 14 years in state prison.

Cuff was convicted of reckless manslaughter and child endangerment in the death of his 2-month-old son.

Prosecutors say Cuff caused the child's death by repeatedly shaking the child while caring for him.

The child died a week after his maternal grandmother had taken him to a hospital.
