New York man sentenced to 15 years for beating death of 3-year-old
NEW YORK CITY - A New York City man was sentenced to 15 years in prison Tuesday for the 2016 beating death of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son, District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said. “This was a senseless death of a helpless little boy who was left in the defendant’s care,” Gonzalez said. “There is no excuse ever, under any circumstances, for beating a child. Today’s sentence is a small measure of justice for Jaden and his devastated family.”
