A Kennewick man is facing a possible 10 year prison sentence after admitting to killing his 3 year-old son.

The boy was in and out of hospitals with brain injuries and alleged chronic abuse between 2012 and 2015.

10 years is the recommended sentence, but a Kennewick judge can order up to 13 for manslaughter.

The father previously served 6 months after urging his older son to make up lies about the reason the toddler was hospitalized.
