SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ A Salina man has been sentenced to life in prison in the abuse death of his ex-girlfriend's 14-month-old son.
The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/1epjXa0) reports that that 29-year-old Antonio Brown apologized before he was sentenced Friday. He will become eligible for parole after 20 years for first-degree murder in the 2011 death of Clayden Urbanek. If he's granted parole then or at any other time, he then will have to serve an additional 16 years and two months for charges of child abuse and obstructing official duty.
The toddler's mother, Brittney Betzold, is serving 13 years after pleading guilty to second-degree murder for failing to protect Clayden.
The abuse occurred over several days after the couple agreed Brown would care for the boy while Betzold worked to support the couple.
