Father reacts to a conviction in the death of his baby son
CLEVELAND, Tennessee (WDEF) – A Cleveland father says justice was served for the death of his 17 month old son.
Yesterday, baby Levi’s mother Amanda Beaty and her boyfriend Rodger Prince, were convicted of first degree felony murder for the death of the child.
It happened in June of 2014 in Morgan County.
Doctors say the baby’s injuries were similar to being in a car crash or kicked by a horse.
Levi’s father says these past four years have been difficult. He says the verdict brings some closure.
Wesley Beaty told us “This shouldn’t happen to any child no matter what. Children are gifts from God. They shouldn’t be mistreated at all.”
A judge sentenced Amanda Beaty and Prince to life in prison.
