A New Rochelle man was sentenced Tuesday in the 2011 death of his son.
Richard Leak, 32, was found guilty in March by a jury trial of one count of first-degree manslaughter, a class "B" felony.
He was sentenced as a predicate violent felony offender to a determinate term of 20 years in prison.
Around 1 a.m. Jan. 9, 2011, Richard Leak phoned his live-in girlfriend, who was not at their Main Street home at the time, to say Khalil Leak was not breathing. The girlfriend called a neighbor to ask her to check on the child.
Khalil Leak was taken to Sound Shore Medical Center where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.
The County Medical Examiner determined the cause of Khalil Leak's death to be from a fracture to the back of his skull caused by blunt force. The child's ribs were fractures and there were contusions to his brain.
Police initiated an investigation into the death and on Jan. 12, 2011, Richard Leak was arrested.
