Butternut Man Sentenced for 2-Year-Old’s Death

Man Sentenced for Causing the Death of Girlfriend's Son

A Butternut man has learned he’ll be spending 30 years in prison for beating his girlfriend’s two-year-old son to death in 2014.

Twenty-eight year old Duane Amos got that sentence along with 20 years of extended supervision after his release for committing first degree reckless homicide.

Medical experts found bruising on the child, rib fractures, a collapsed lung, evidence of non-accidental violent shaking and blunt force trauma to the head.
