Weimer sentenced to life for child abuse

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man, convicted of beating his girlfriend's 2-year-old son to death, has been sentenced.

Charles Weimer was found guilty in June of first-degree murder and child abuse. The jury recommended a life sentence and Judge Emmit Tayloe agreed.

The child died in January 2012. Weimer had told the boy's mother that the boy had fallen down the stairs as they were leaving his apartment. A medical examiner's report showed the child had a series of injuries and that the severity and location of the injuries were indicative of child abuse.

Weimer will be eligible for parole in 38 years.
