A judge sentenced the man who pleaded guilty to killing his 4-month-old son to 30-50 years in prison today. 

Deandre Hamilton, 23, pleaded guilty to second degree murder after his son, Elijah Jones, was found not breathing at an apartment on Detroit's east side last March.

The infant died shortly after of blunt force trauma to the head. The boy's mother was at work when he was killed.
