Authorities said that on June 20, 2020, police found that Rowley had “severely shaken” his 4-month-old son before dropping him face first in his crib, causing him to suffer a fatal brain injury. His father did not take the infant to a hospital until four hours following the incident.

“I recognize no sentence handed down today can ease the unbearable loss to Milo’s family. On behalf of my office, I extend our sincerest condolences to Milo’s mother and family,” said Ada County Prosecutor Jan Bennetts. “The abuse and homicide of a child is heartbreaking, and I want to acknowledge the tireless efforts by all who worked on this case, from my trial team, the medical experts, to the Boise Police Detectives whose dedication and hard work on this homicide allowed my office to successfully prosecute and serve justice in this case.”
