Man, 24, found guilty of murdering gf's 5-year-old son
GLENS FALLS (CBS6/AP)-- The court room was silent when a Washington County jury handed down a guilty verdict to the Glens Falls man on trial for killing his girlfriend's 5-year-old son.
24-year-old Brandon Warrington was convicted of second-degree murder, second-degree manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child for the death of Gary Carpenter on November 16, 2012.
Prosecutors said the child was abused for weeks as punishment by Warrington and died of a massive head injury.
Warrington's lawyer said the child died because of neglect by his mother, Jennie Mattison.
Mattison testified against Warrington after pleading guilty to hindering prosecution for initially lying about how her child was hurt.
