An eastern Indiana man has been sentenced to 37 years in prison in the starvation death of his 3-month-old son.
The boy's mother, 22-year-old Amy Hockett, was sentenced in March to 60 years after being convicted of murder.
Dean says Pierson will appeal his sentence.
The boy was found unresponsive inside the couple's Richmond home. The cause of death was dehydration due to starvation.
