KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A Kalamazoo man was sentenced to decades in prison for his role in the death of a baby who was in his care.
Sonny Larsen will serve 25 to 50 years in prison for the death of his girlfriend’s 7-month-old son.
The baby was found unresponsive last November at a home in Kalamazoo, and was later pronounced dead at an area hospital. Investigators said Larsen admitted to violently shaking the child.
Larsen pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in exchange for charges of open murder and first-degree child abuse being dropped.
