Man sentenced to life in prison for fatally beating toddler

A jury has sentenced a Charlotte man to life in prison without parole after he fatally beat his toddler son to death in 2008.

The decision for 27-year-old Andre Hampton's fate came after the jury deliberated for four days.

Nearly two weeks ago, the jury found Hampton guilty of first-degree murder by torture, first-degree felony murder, and two counts of child abuse.

Hampton's 23-month-old son, Elijah Burger, was found inside an extended stay motel where the family was staying in 2008.

Hampton beat Elijah over a two-day period until the toddler died.
