A local father was sentenced Thursday in the death of his nine-month-old son.

Maurice Faison was sentenced to the maximum of 25 years to life in prison. He was found guilty in June of second-degree murder.

His nine-month-old son, Tristen, was rushed to the hospital in September after his mother found him unresponsive in his crib. The baby died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.
