Milwaukee man gets 19 years prison for beating death of child

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man will spend 19 years in prison for beating his ex-girlfriend’s son to death.

22-year-old Marcus Colin was also told to spend 14 years under extended supervision, after being convicted of second-degree reckless homicide and felony child neglect.

Colin killed 5-year-old Jayden Banda-Goodman last October, while Colin was waiting to be sentenced for attacking the boy’s mother.

Alyssa Banda suffered facial injuries and a broken finger after she tried breaking up with Colin. Banda told a social worker that the youngster fell down a flight of stairs while helping carry groceries to her south side Milwaukee apartment.

Doctors said a fall was not enough to explain the youngster’s extensive injuries – which included a blood infection and numerous bruises.

The mother later told police that Colin was boxing with Jayden to try and make him tougher – and he played too rough. Colin told a judge that he never took out anger on the child.

The mother pleaded guilty to child neglect while causing death. She’s scheduled to be sentenced later this month.
