A man has been sentenced to 21 years in jail for fatally beating his son.

Lloyd Scott, of Mount Vernon, had pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Prosecutors say that in April 2018, Scott beat his 2-year-old son while the boy's mother was at work.

Scott told the mother their son was asleep, but when she checked on him he was covered in bruises and not breathing.
