Father sentenced for neglect of child crushed by dresser

Posted: Updated:

An Upstate father whose son was crushed to death by a dresser in 2013 was sentenced Wednesday.

Christopher Shaver, 30, was sentenced to 18 months with one day time served for the charge of unlawful neglect of a child in Greenville County. 

Shaver was arrested after his son 2-year-old Chandler Shaver's death March 12, 2013.

Greenville County deputies said Shaver and his wife, Margie, kept Chandler and his 4-year-old sister locked in an unsanitary, unsafe bedroom and failed to supervise their activities the night of his death.

Deputies said Shaver was not at home at the time of his son's death.

Correction: It was originally reported that Margie Shaver was sentenced to 18 months. She has not been sentenced at this time. Her trial is scheduled for later in April.
