A Butler County man has been sentenced to 15 years to life in prison for killing a 1-year-old boy last August.

Dylan Tompkins, 21, was found guilty by a judge on Tuesday for the Aug. 2, 2013 murder of Bryce Pelfrey. The infant died after sustaining substantial injuries while under Tompkins' care.

Tompkins was arrested last August after Hamilton police arrived at 15 Marlou Drive and found the infant unresponsive. The child was taken to Fort Hamilton Hospital and then moved to Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center where he died two days later.
