Northern NY man pleads guilty in baby's death

Posted: Updated:

FORT EDWARD, N.Y. (AP) - A northern New York man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter for killing his girlfriend's 3-month-old son.

Local media report that 30-year-old Kevin Wayne King told police he slammed the infant to the floor of the Fort Edward apartment where he lived with his girlfriend on Aug. 11. Police say King was playing a videogame and was angered when the child wouldn't stop crying and fussing.

His guilty plea Thursday was with the understanding that a murder count would be dismissed and King will be sentenced to 20 years in prison.

King's mother, Elizabeth Braman, told the Glens Falls Post-Star her son loved the baby and believed he was the biological father until post-mortem DNA tests proved otherwise.
