Grampian Man Charged

ccording to Clearfield County District Attorney Ryan Sayers, a Grampian man who was charged in the death of his infant daughter was sentenced Tuesday.

Sayers says Dakota Canfield, 24, will serve 7 months in county jail, plus an additional 5 years probation.

In Sept. of 2020, police charged Canfield and 23-year-old Alexa Kephart in the death of their 39-day-old daughter.

Police say the couple woke up on the morning of July 1, 2020, and found the baby unconscious and blue in color.

Upon further investigation, troopers learned the Clearfield CYS had an active case against the couple after Kephart was found with drugs in her system on the day that the child was born.

Canfield previously pleaded guilty to charges of reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.

Sayers noted that Canfield was scheduled to testify against Kephart prior to her plea deal.

Kephart was sentenced earlier this month to serve six months in county jail.
