SUNNYSIDE, Wash. - A Yakima County judge sentenced a Sunnyside man Wednesday to six and a half years in prison for manslaughter.

21-year-old Juan Lopez was babysitting back in 2010 when he hit his girlfriend's 2-year-old son.
The Sunnyside boy died from injuries to his torso.

Lopez told officers he hit the boy out of anger and sleep deprivation.
