PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. – A Georgia father accused of killing his 12-year-old son was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole

Paulding County’s district attorney said Shayaa Forbes pleaded guilty to killing his son, Eric, in 2013.

Forbes was indicted by a grand jury in April of 2014... but had been free until a court date was set for this month.

Investigators say Eric Forbes' body had injuries and scars that indicated he'd endured years of abuse.

His father initially claimed the 12-year-old drowned in a bathtub.
