But when Fisher returned home, he was dripping wet, distressed and alone. The father had fallen into the Logan River cradling his son in his arms, and let go. The six-month-old’s body was found downstream the next morning.
Apparently the husband was high on a combination of substances and allegations swirled that he was having “delusions” at the time of the incident. He was charged with murder.
The case has now been settled in court as the father pleaded guilty to manslaughter and some drug charges. He was sentenced to 7 1/2 years, with parole eligibility after 3 1/2 years. Since he has already spent over three years in jail he could possibly be released by the end of 2015.
