A Hamilton County judge sentenced a father for the murder of his toddler son.

left eye, legs, arms and midsection. There were also lacerations above
his penis, on the back of his neck, above his left ear and on his left
buttocks. He also had an untreated burn on his right hand.

with being stomped on.
