WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A Warren county father will spend at least 19 years in prison after pleading guilty Friday in connection with the death of his infant son.

Cody Colwell was charged with murder following the death of 2-month-old Cayden last April.

Colwell took a deal to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter and endangering children.

Investigators say the infant suffered head trauma, which led to brain swelling and other complications.
