DANIELSON, CT (WFSB) -

A father from Putnam is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday for the choking death of his 2-year-old son.

David Mahan, 31, is expected to serve a 7-year suspended sentence after serving two years in jail and five years of probation.

Mahan's son died after choking on cereal in March 2014. The incident happened in their apartment on Mechanic Street in Putnam.

His sentencing is set to take place at Danielson Superior Court.

Mahan's former girlfriend, Renee Peterson, was sentenced to five years in prison and five years probation.
