MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - A Monongalia County man has been sentenced to up to five years in prison on a neglect charge stemming from a baby’s death.

Media outlets report that Jordan Kovach was sentenced on Tuesday in Monongalia County Circuit Court. He had pleaded guilty earlier to child neglect creating substantial risk of injury.

Kovach’s girlfriend, Tiffany Bankhead, received the same sentence on Monday.

Bankhead’s 14-month-old daughter, Gia, was found dead in the couple’s home in June 2013.
