A Manhattan nanny convicted of stuffing a baby wipe down the throat of a 2-month-old boy in her care, nearly killing the child, was sentenced on Monday to 15 years in prison.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office announced that 30-year-old Lawrence Dilione pleaded guilty to one count of manslaughter for his role in the murder of 26-year-old Joey Comunale.
“This is another major step forward on the road toward justice for Joey Comunale. I thank our prosecutors for ensuring not only that this defendant will serve significant prison time for his role in this unconscionable crime, but also for sparing the Comunale family the agony of reliving their son’s death in yet another murder trial.”
