KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) — A Kinston father charged in the February 2014 death of his one-month-old son pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in Lenoir County Court Tuesday.
Ricky Clark Jr. received a 120-to-156-month sentence.
His son, Caden Williams, died in February 2014 and a medical examiner’s report released in August led to police reopening the case as a homicide.
The report showed the infant suffered broken ribs, a damaged liver and had serious head trauma.
Clark Jr. was out on bond but reported to the jail on 6 p.m. Tuesday.
9OYS has reached out the Lenoir County Clerk of Court’s Office for more information, but we have not heard back.
