Man Gets 25 Years in Death of Infant
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A Sikeston man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for killing an infant in his care.
The Sikeston Standard Democrat reports that 20-year-old Kevin Dixon was sentenced Monday for second-degree murder and child abuse. The case was heard in St. Louis County on a change of venue.
The baby, 8-month-old Jamieon Quanterius Jatwaun Mosby, died in 2009. Dixon admitted striking the child's head against a wall because the baby was crying.
