Thirty-two-year-old Fu Sun entered an Alford plea Tuesday in a Toledo courtroom to a charge of negligent homicide in the death of his son, Evan, in May. An Alford plea is not an admission of guilt but acknowledges there's enough evidence for a conviction.
A felony endangering children charge was dismissed.
Sun graduated from the Ohio State Highway Patrol training academy in April. He resigned from the patrol in mid-June.
Defense attorney Lorin Zaner called the case a sad situation that's been resolved with a fair resolution.
Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 5.
