Topeka teen sentenced to 9 years for abuse of baby

KSAL StaffJanuary 24, 2015

A Topeka teen has been sentenced to nine years in prison for child abuse that left a baby with serious brain damage.

The Topeka reports that Koylen Corbin McKinney was sentenced Friday for abusing a 7-month-old boy in Holton. McKinney was two months shy of his 18th birthday when the abuse happened in April. He was tried as an adult.

Jackson County District Attorney Shawna Miller says the baby was hospitalized for an “extensive period of time and was not expected to live.” Miller said in a news release that the mother submitted a letter to the court, telling about the sadness she felt because her child would “never lead a normal life.”
