An Omaha woman has been given several years in prison in connection with the abuse of her boyfriend's young son.
Nicole Corcoran was sentenced Tuesday to eight to 10 years in prison. Chad Cymbalista was given 4 to 5 years in prison. Both had pleaded guilty to Child Abuse Intentional/Injury.
Authorities say Corcoran took care of a then 2-year-old Aiden in May 2012 while his father, Cymbalista, was at work. The boy was later taken to an Omaha hospital with head injuries, severe mouth and lip infections and bruises on his body.
Corcoran and Cymbalista were both charged last year with child abuse resulting in injury. A judge said Cymbalista must have known what was happening to his son.
