COLUMBUS (WCMH) —  Kyle Richard Black pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges in connection to the death of his 11-month old child, who died from a lethal dose of heroin.

According to investigators, 11-month-old Dominic Dickinson died as a result of ingesting narcotics while in the care of his parents, May 13, 2015 at a residence in the 1400 block of Blaine Drive, where the family lived.

Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien says the baby was pronounced dead at the scene and it was determined that the child had lethal doses of heroin and fentanyl in his system that caused his death.

Black, 29, and the father to Dickinson, faces 11 years in prison and is scheduled for sentencing June 1.
