Salina Man Gets Life Sentence for Starving Son to Death

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — The father of a 3-month-old Salina boy who was abused and starved to death has been sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. Twenty-eight-year-old Nicholas Corbin had pleaded no contest to first-degree murder in the death of Jordan Corbin in December 2013. Before he was sentenced Monday, Corbin said he and the baby's mother, Desirah Overturf, did not know how to care for a baby and were both under stress when the child died. Overturf was sentenced in September to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years. The Salina Journal reports that a defense attorney argued Corbin had an intellectual disability and should not be subject to mandated sentencing.
