Jevon Wameling is headed to prison. He was sentenced to seven and a half to fifteen years in prison in Oneida County Court Thursday morning. Wameling was found guilty of killing his 9-month old son back in May.
People have been waiting for this sentencing since the summer. Wameling plead guilty to second degree manslaughter charges for the death of his son Levon and it was an emotional morning in the Oneida County Courthouse.
“Jevon took something from me that I will never get back, something that I will never be able to kiss, hold, feel, touch or hear the words ‘mommy’ come out of his mouth," said Amy Warney, Levon’s mother.
Warney also yelled ‘I hate you’ at Jevon as he was taken out of the courtroom. But not before he was sentenced to seven and a half to fifteen years in prison.
Wameling failed to seek medical attention for his baby son. Instead, he took Levon's body and dumped it the Mohawk River. Utica and State Police spent months looking for the 9-month old in a story that gripped the community.
When the baby's remains were finally pulled from the river, an autopsy revealed a skull fracture. Thursday in court, Wameling had nothing to say.
"Mr. Wameling do you have anything to say for yourself before I sentence you?” said Oneida County Judge Barry Donalty.
“No," said Wameling.
Judge Donalty then sentenced Jevon making a recommendation to the Parole Board.
"I recommend to the Parole Board, Mr. Wameling, that you not be released one second shorter than the maximum period in prison…" said Judge Donalty.
Warney said she will be at every Parole Board meeting to make sure he does not get out early. She also said she thinks he deserves far more time in jail than the sentence.
