CRESCENT SPRINGS, KY (FOX19) -

A 24-year-old Crescent Springs man will serve 30-years in prison after he pleaded guilty to murdering a 3-month-old.

Robert Schierer pleaded guilty to murdering William Forsythe in November of 2013. At the time of the infant's death, Schierer was sharing an apartment with William's mother.

On Nov. 12, 2013, crews were dispatched to Horton Street in Crescent Springs for an infant not breathing. William was airlifted to University of Cincinnati Medical Center and placed on life-support. William succumbed to his injuries a few days later.

"There's something that occurred on your watch, in a horrible way, to someone who couldn't defend themselves. Couldn't speak, couldn't say stop, couldn't call 911, or any of those things," said Kenton County Circuit Court Judge, Patricia Summe. "So i'm thinking that it's beneficial to the community as well, that when someone has those kinds of urges, that the community is protected from them and made safe."
