Pastor, wife get prison sentences after foster child's death

An Ohio pastor has been sentenced to 18 years to life in prison in the death of his foster son, and his wife received three years for endangering the child.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/2qABuL4 ) 38-year-old Torace Weaver and 40-year-old Shureka Weaver were sentenced Friday.

Torace Weaver was convicted last month on murder and other charges in the death of 2-year-old Stanley Thomas III. Prosecutors say Shureka Weaver failed to get Stanley treatment for a severe burn.

Torace Weave's attorney says an appeal is planned. Shureka Weaver's attorney didn't return telephone messages.

Torace Weaver told police Stanley slipped off a table and hit his head while playing "Superman" at a church in November 2015.

A coroner said Stanley died of a catastrophic skull fracture and had numerous blunt force injuries and disfiguring burns.
