Man Sentenced for Killing Toddler

A Salamanca man who punched and killed his girlfriend’s three-year-old son six months ago will spend the next 21 years in prison.

30-year-old Justin Crouse was sentenced this morning for punching Gage Seneca in the head after the toddler got up in the middle of the night and wouldn’t stop crying. Gage’s mother discovered him not breathing about seven hours later. An autopsy showed that Gage died of blunt force trauma to the head.

The incident happened on the Seneca Nation's Cattaraugus Reservation.
