GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) - A Gloucester County couple imprisoned for keeping their daughter in a makeshift cage has been sentenced in a separate case involving their infant son’s death.

Media outlets report that Gloucester Circuit Judge William Hamblen sentenced Brian Gore on Wednesday to 10 years in prison with all but 57 months suspended. Gore’s wife, Shannon Gore, received a 10-year sentence with all but 36 months suspended.

The couple was convicted of neglect and abuse in May.

Authorities found the 7-month-old boy’s remains under a shed at the couple’s residence in 2011 while investigating the earlier case.

Police discovered the daughter in a makeshift cage while investigating a burglary report.

Brian Gore and Shannon Gore each are serving 30-year sentences after pleading guilty in the earlier case to child abuse and malicious wounding.
