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.
