BRIGHTON, Mich. – A Brighton man will spend 5 1/2 to 10 years in prison for abusing his girlfriend’s 1-year-old child last year, officials said.
Luke Tobia Sementelli was sentenced Friday in connection with the abuse that left the infant in critical condition last July.
Officials said Semetelli threw the baby boy to the floor three times at Brighton Cove Apartments and shook the boy “feverishly.”
The injuries caused the baby to suffer from seizures. Officials said he had to be placed on a ventilator.
