GOSHEN, New York — A 23-year-old upstate New York man has been sentenced to four to 12 years in prison for suffocating his 1-year-old son in 2012.

The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/1pIKtkc ) that Brett Kanoff was sentenced Wednesday in Orange County Court for killing Cameron Louis Kanoff by smothering him with a blanket at home in Port Jervis.

Kanoff was originally charged with second-degree murder and faced up to 25 years to life in prison if convicted. He took a plea deal to manslaughter against his lawyer's advice, in exchange for the four-to-12 year sentence.
