Life Sentence For Killer of 4-year-old

Do you remember that story a while back about the guy who was accused of beating a 4-year old to death here in Somerset?

A Superior Court jury found him guilty and sentenced him to life in prison. No chance of parole.

My original post has been getting high traffic, and at least one person tried to anonymously IM me about the story, to cast doubt on his guilt, claiming that the boy’s mother is lying about something. I was away from the computer at the time. All I know about this story is what I read in the paper, and it’s pretty bad.

The jury reached the conclusion that Mr. Durand was responsible for the boy’s death. The verdict will be appealed to a higher court. But one thing that will not change is that a little boy has died from some violent injuries. From the testimony, it doesn’t sound like he had a very easy time while he was alive, either. What a horrible story all around.
