A man who was convicted of killing his own baby son was punched in the face by his brother, the infant’s uncle, moments after being jailed for 25 years on Wednesday.
Kwin Boes was arrested in May last year after his 11-month-old son Parker died of blunt force trauma to the head.
Boes, 23, was leaving the courtroom in Evansville, Indiana, in shackles when his brother ran towards him and punched him in the face.
They were separated by court bailiffs.
Boes’ son died last year after being brought to the hospital unresponsive. He was airlifted to a different facility but doctors could not revive him.
He told officers that the baby had fallen off his ‘booby pillow’ on the couch, hit his head and died.
A medical examiner ruled that his death was the result of homicide.
The uncle, who has not been named, was arrested for punching his brother inside the courtroom.
He was filmed being put in handcuffs and walked down the stairs from the courthouse.
As he was led away, he yelled: ‘I ain’t resisting you guys.’
Boes told cops his 11-month-old son Parker died by hitting his head after falling off the couch. He had been beaten to death in the head
