Waldo Jones, 30, plead guilty to the beating death of 12-year-old Devin Parsons in October and was sentenced in court Wednesday. Jones told the court he wishes to appeal the sentencing. The boy's mother, Tasha Parsons, was sentenced to 60 years in prison in July.
Parsons admitted to beating Devin for hours using her hands, feet, belt and a metal tray because he would not tell her where he hid her drugs. Devin was found dead in the home the next day.
Parsons told police her boyfriend Waldo Jones participated in the beating death. He originally denied his participation, but blood was later found on his clothes and he was also charged with murder.
