Todd Combs will spend one year behind bars after admitting to giving alcohol to his stepson hours before the boy's death. A tearful Todd Combs told the judge on Monday that he was just trying to fit in with his kids when he provided them with alcohol during a family outing on the Meramec River last year. His stepson Christopher Marks went missing that day, after family members told police he was drinking beer and acting funny. Christopher's body discovered downstream three days later. The prosecution was asking for a 7-year sentence, but they lacked physical proof that alcohol played a direct roll in the boy's death. By the time Christopher's body was found, it was too badly decomposed to get an accurate alcohol reading. Combs will also serve two years probation, during which time he'll be forced to wear an alcohol monitoring bracelet.

An Affton man admitted to giving alcohol to his preteen stepson just hours before the boy drowned in the Meramec River.

Todd Combs told prosecutors he had supplied alcohol to several minors, including 12-year-old Christopher Marks, on August 5 of last year. The family was having a picnic in the Pacific Palisades conservation area. Family members told police Marks went to use a rope swing by the river, but never returned.

After days of searching, teams found the boy's body miles downstream.

Combs will be sentenced next month for seven counts of child endangerment.
