A jury on Thursday reportedly found Michael L. Giovo Jr. guilty of first-degree murder in the death of his 4-month-old son. He was automatically sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Skyler Giovo died in late 2008. Authorities reportedly say he was the victim of shaken-baby syndrome.
Giovo of Largo has reportedly insisted he did nothing to hurt his son. The baby must have died, Giovo told police, because he fell off a couch on Thanksgiving night. Giovo's fiancee was asleep that Thanksgiving night when the shaking occurred.
The baby reportedly began twitching the next morning, so the couple took him to a hospital. Days later, he was removed from life support.
