The parents of a 2-month-old baby who starved to death pleaded guilty Monday in his death.

Gregory Robey and Bambi Glazebrook were formally convicted Monday and sentenced for the November 2012 death of Phillip Robey, according to Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.

Gregory pleaded guilty Friday to one count of Neglect of a Dependent, a Class B Felony and was sentenced to six years in prison. Glazebrook pleaded guilty last month to Neglect of a Dependent, a Class A Felony, and sentenced May 30 to 30 years in prison plus 10 years of probation.

Glazebrook failed to provide proper nurture for the child despite several warnings from concerned neighbors and friends, according to court documents. An autopsy revealed Phillip died of failure to thrive or starvation. Robey was charged for his failure to see that the child was adequately fed or nurtured.
