CHICO, Calif. -- A man involved in a butane honey oil lab explosion from February received the maximum sentence of nine years after pleading guilty to charges of child endangerment, says District Attorney Mike Ramsey.
On Feb. 19, officers responded to an explosion at Eric Palmer's home on Burnap Avenue.
In the garage where the lab exploded officers say Palmer's 5-month-old daughter was inside the home at the time.
Ramsey said the baby was unhurt.
Brittany Larsen, the baby's mother, was also present during the explosion.
She will be sentenced on June 12.
