Baby-beating death case in court

The Herald's Hannah Sampson reported on an emotional day today in Broward County court.

A 12-year-old boy accused of beating to death his 17-month-old cousin pleaded not guilty in juvenile court of second-degree murder. State prosecutors are close to working out a deal for the boy to serve three years in a juvenile facility followed by probation.

It was a brutal death - police say the boy used a baseball bat to beat the toddler because her crying kept him from watching TV - but the boy's mom says the courts should let him free.

"My son's only 12 years old," she told the judge Monday. "He's not guilty."
