They were charged with murder, but a jury thought that charge was a little too harsh.
On Wednesday afternoon a Breathitt County jury convicted Robert and Karen Miller with second degree manslaughter.
Their 11-month-old son died after he swallowed a methadone pill.
The couple admitted to using the drug but say they had no idea their son had gotten his hands on a pill.
The jury recommended a ten year sentence for Robert Miller and eight years for Karen Miller.
