INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – An Indianapolis man will soon be sentenced for the 2014 death of his 4-year-old son.
Dennis Price was found guilty of all three charges against him, including murder, neglect of a dependent resulting in death, and battery with death of a person less than 14 years of age.
According to authorities, Price admitted to repeatedly beating his son in August 2014.
Court documents state the child suffered what appeared to be a number of blunt force traumatic injuries over his entire body.
Price told police that over the past few days he “repeatedly whipped with a black belt and punched his son about the body and head to the point where he eventually began acting differently, lost consciousness and ultimately died,” court documents state.
Price will be sentenced April 8.
