The Cumberland County prosecutor's office says 20-year-old Ronald Cuff Jr. of Vineland was sentenced Friday to 14 years in state prison.

Cuff was convicted of reckless manslaughter and child endangerment in the death of his 2-month-old son.

Prosecutors say Cuff caused the child's death by repeatedly shaking the child while caring for him.

The child died a week after his maternal grandmother had taken him to a hospital.
