A Montgomery County man who admitted to killing his infant son is once again asking for a lighter sentence.

Jameel East was sentenced to 15-30 years in jail after pleading guilty to third-degree murder.

Prosecutors say he hit his son's head on a bathroom sink in a home near Lansdale back in 2011.

East's first request for a lesser sentence was shot down in July.

Now he's appealed to the state Superior Court.
