A Cuyahoga Falls man was sentenced to serve 8 years in prison in connection with the death of his 3-year-old daughter.

Matthew Scott, 29, of Cuyahoga Falls pleaded guilty to endangering children in November.

Prosecutors said Scott called 911 on Feb. 5, 2015 and said he dropped his daughter from a swing and that she was having trouble breathing. The girl died days later at the hospital.
