Gilbert man gets life sentence for killing of 2-year-old son

PHOENIX (AP) - A Gilbert man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in the 2011 death of his 2-year-old son.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman said Jonathan Ray Cole was sentenced Wednesday by Judge Roland Steinle.

After Cole's arrest, authorities said he either strangled or suffocated his son after an argument with his wife.

Responders had found the toddler unresponsive and not breathing.
