Cumberland County Man Convicted Of Murdering His 16-Month-Old Son

A jury has convicted a Cumberland County man of first-degree murder in the beating death of his 16-month old son two years ago.

The sheriff's office says 31-year old Evans Aine II of Spring Lake also was convicted Monday of felony child abuse and sentenced to life without parole.

Aine was accused of beating Kaiden Demus with a belt and his fists, causing the boy to suffer blunt force trauma to the head and body. Kaiden died on June 11, 2012.

Aine told investigators that Kaiden fell on a sidewalk in front of their home, then claimed to have taken Kaiden into the house and placed him in a bathtub to clean him.

A report from the State Medical Examiner's Office showed the child had been beaten to death.
