A judge has sentenced a Reno man to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 20 years for murdering a toddler last year.

23-year-old Donald Jackson was found guilty of killing his girlfriend's 19-month-old son in August 2012 inside a Lakeside Drive residence.

Monday's sentence also includes an additional 13 months to five years in prison for felony child abuse.

Autopsy records show the boy suffered blunt force trauma so severe that it severed part of his liver and lacerated his spleen.

Police say the mother was at work when the incident happened.
