GREEN BAY — A Green Bay man has been sentenced to 18 years in prison in the death of his 23-day-old son.

Jeremiah Thomas pleaded no contest in September to a reduced charge of reckless homicide.

Police say rescue crews found the child unresponsive in Thomas’ west-side apartment in January 2018.

The child suffered skull fractures, broken ribs, and broken legs.

WLUK-TV reported that Thomas apologized before Judge John Zakowski handed down the sentence on Monday.

The judge said Thomas did not have a criminal record before the killing and he took responsibility for his actions but that was outweighed by the seriousness of the case.
