JASPER COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)-- A Jasper County man will be behind bars for the death of his son.

Michael Zylstra has been sentenced to 30 years for neglect of a dependent resulting in death.

In March of 2017, deputies responded to a call of a baby boy not breathing at the home of Michael and Dannae Zylstra.

The couple's baby died three days later.

Dannae Zylstra still faces multiple charges, including neglect of a dependent resulting in death. Her jury trial is currently set for April 10th.
