WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita man is going to prison for more than three years for abusing and battering his 3-month-old son.

The Wichita Eagle reports a Sedgwick County judge on Tuesday sentenced Aaron Piland to three years and five months for aggravated battery, plus 32 months for child abuse. The sentences will be served concurrently.

Piland pleaded guilty in May.

He and the baby's 28-year-old mother, Christina Schulte, were arrested after the mother took the baby to an emergency room in January claiming he became unresponsive after a bath. Doctors found internal injuries and alerted authorities.

Schulte is also charged in the case, but court records show she failed to appear for her jury trial June 30. She's being sought on a warrant with a $275,000 bond.
