Tucson man gets prison in 2017 death of girlfriend's baby

A man has been sentenced to a decade in prison after the death of his girlfriend’s baby boy in Tucson.

Pima County prosecutors say Ivan Alejandro Portillo was sentenced Monday after reaching a plea agreement in June.

He got a 10-year prison term on a manslaughter charge and probation for life on a child abuse charge.

Portillo and Salma Rodriguez were facing murder charges in the June 2017 death of her 10-month-old son.

Doctors say the baby had a fractured skull, some older head injuries and a healing fractured rib.

According to Tucson TV station KOLD, none of the child’s injuries were consistent with a fall.

Salma Rodriguez is scheduled to be sentenced on Sept. 3 after pleading guilty to manslaughter and child abuse charges in July 2018.
