A Baton Rouge man will officially spend the rest of his life behind bars after killing a toddler.

Randy Parker was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday on second-degree murder charges stemming from the death of 2-year-old Demarcus Stokes. 

Parker was convicted back in June of beating the child so bad that he died.

The family said they are happy Parker will never be free again.
