SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) _ A jury is recommending more than 100-years in prison for a Shawnee man it convicted of shaking his 3-month-old son, causing severe brain damage.

Donald Stevenson was convicted in Pottawatomie County of child abuse for the injuries to Trenton Stevenson last November. Formal sentencing is scheduled for Monday.

Stevenson says he fell over a vacuum cleaner while holding the boy and fell on the infant.

Prosecutors say the now 13-month-old boy remains hospitalized in Oklahoma City and has a life expectancy of five years.
