A Columbiana County man remained in the county jail Wednesday as he awaited sentencing on charges he was convicted of in connection with the death of his 4-month-old son.

Aaron Delo, 30, of Negley was arrested last week on a warrant issued after he failed to appear for a January 6th sentencing hearing in common pleas court.

Delo, who pleaded guilty earlier to child endangerment and aggravated possession of drugs, is now scheduled to be sentenced on February 10. Prosecutors are recommending a two year prison sentence.

As part of the plea deal, a previous charge of involuntary manslaughter was dropped. 

His 4-month-old son Dallas Delo died on New Year's Day in 2018 while in his father's care at a motel in Lisbon. 

The coroner says the death, described as sudden unexplained infant death, occurred at the Frola Motel.
