Man gets life in prison for beating 2-year-old to death


MILWAUKEE (WKOW)-- A Milwaukee man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally beating a 2-year-old boy.

28-year-old Corey Benson was sentenced Friday with no chance of supervised release. Benson was convicted back in March for killing his girlfriend's 2-year-old son while babysitting him in 2011 and severely injuring the boy in 2010. He continued to deny responsibility in court Friday.

The criminal complaint says Benson walked into Aurora Sinai Medical Center in 2011 carrying Karmari Curtis, who wasn't breathing. An autopsy showed the boy had multiple injuries at the time.

Benson has been charged with abusing Karmari before. In October 2010 the boy was hospitalized for six days because of his injuries he sustained during the abuse.
