BOLIVIA, N.C. (AP) - A Brunswick County man will be sentenced in November after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and felony child abuse in the death of his four-month-old son.

The Brunswick County District Attorney’s Office announced to local media outlets Monday that 20-year-old Randy Richardson of Shallotte confessed to shaking Colton Richardson on May 28 of last year. The child died of head trauma a few days later.

An autopsy showed that the child also had broken ribs that were healing at the time of his death.

Prosecutors say that Randy Richardson faces as much as 12 years in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 17.
