Suspect Pleads Guilty In Child Death

A Lenoir County man who confessed to fatally beating and scalding a baby boy, is headed to prison for life without the possibility of parole.

Michael Boyd was sentenced in the Lenoir County Superior Court after he pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of one-year-old Dariez Tyleek Webb. The assistant district attorney says Boyd was babysitting his girlfriend's children at her home when Webb died.

Boyd maintains he did not intend to hurt the child.
