Cervantes sentenced on assault charge

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Antonio Cervantes was sentenced in court on Tuesday for a January assault charge.

Prosecutors say the night of January 31, Cervantes punched Dionai Pickle-Lewis in the head.

Cervantes was sentenced to six months in the Lucas County Jail, to run concurrent with other sentences.

In a separate, unrelated case, Cervantes is charged with involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence, child endangering, and abuse of a corpse.

You may recall, Cervantes is the father of the infant found dead on April 31, in a freezer at an East Toledo house.

Cervantes' baby's mother, Kenisha Pruitt, 21, pleaded guilty to aggravated murder.

Pruitt was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 20 years.

Cervantes is charged with involuntary manslaughter, tampering with evidence, child endangering, and abuse of a corpse.

His case is pending.
