Michael Schroeder of Atkinson was sentenced Monday after pleading no contest to child abuse resulting in the death of his son.
Schroeder, 26, was sentenced in Holt County District Court by Judge Mark Kozisek. He will serve 20-40 years in prison.
According to court documents, Schroeder’s 8-month-old son, Kalium D. Ebsen, was taken to West Holt Memorial Hospital the evening of Oct. 26 after he was found unresponsive. The infant was then flown to an Omaha hospital, where he died the morning of Oct. 29.
An officer said Schroeder acknowledged bumping the boy's head a couple of times.
