ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. — A police officer in southwestern Wyoming who pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the death of a 2-year-old boy is set to be sentenced in November.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports 35-year-old Jacob Anglesey, of Green River, faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced for the March 2009 death of Konnor Allen, who suffered a head injury while in the man’s care. Two days have been set aside for the hearing, which is scheduled to begin Nov. 28.

An initial investigation didn’t lead to charges, but the case remained open with the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation. In 2015, DCI agents presented evidence to the Sweetwater County Attorney’s Office they said showed Anglesey was inconsistent when describing how the boy was injured.
