A Dewey man has been sentenced to life in prison in connection to the death of a 15-month old.
Marcus Mitchell’s 15-month old stepdaughter died from blunt force trauma in 2012. A judge sentenced him to life with the possibility of parole, plus 39 years for child neglect and drug charges.
Mitchell’s mother, Juanchellee Fitch, is serving a one year sentence as part of a plea deal. The child’s mother, Ashley Mitchell, still faces charges of child neglect and enabling child abuse.
