Kansas man sentenced for murder of infant

PRATT (KSNW) – A Pratt man was sentenced today to more than 18 years in prison for murder in the second degree and abuse of a child.

Joseph David Sponaugle, 29, was sentenced in Pratt County District Court by Judge Francis D. Meisenheimer to 220 months to be served in the Kansas Department of Corrections. Sponaugle pleaded no contest and was convicted last month of one count of second-degree murder, one count of abuse of a child and one count of endangering a child. The convictions stemmed from a murder that occurred in January 2014.

The case was investigated by the Pratt Police Department and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation.
