Findlay Man Sentenced For Death Of Three-Month-Old Son

5/21/19 – 4:59 A.M.

A Findlay man will spend two years in prison for the suffocation death of his son. 27-year-old Jack Killion learned his sentence Monday after pleading guilty to a charge of reckless homicide on April 9th. 3-month old Surreno Killion died on March 1st of 2018. The coroner’s report said the death was accidental, a result of “co-sleeping with an adult.”

County Prosecutor Phil Riegle pushed for the maximum sentence of three years in prison because Killion had drugs in his system at the time. He tested positive for methamphetamine and marijuana.

Riegle said the amount of meth in Killion’s system was very small. Riegle argued that coming off a meth high combined with marijuana would make Killion too tired to realize he was smothering his child.
