CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — The father of a 2-year-old Conway boy who grabbed a loaded gun and killed himself on Christmas Day has been sentenced to five years in prison.

Prosecutors say 30-year-old Rondell Smith was sentenced in Conway on Thursday after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter.

On Christmas Day, investigators say Sincere Smith found the gun on a table in the family’s home and shot himself in the chest. He died on the way to the hospital.
