A man who admitted to causing head injuries to his former girlfriend's 2-year old son was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

23-year old Jonathan Reed did not say anything in Woodford county court Wednesday. The mother and family of now 5-year old Coby Payne read statements in court.

Payne suffered serious head injuries in 2006 when his mother says Reed was babysitting him. Still to this day, Sherry Payne says she doesn't know what sparked Reed to hurt her son.
She says Coby still suffers developmental problems and has to go to Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation hospital once a week.

Reed will be eligible for parole in February because he has already spent three years in jail.
