A Gibson County father who was set to go to trial Monday for the death of his three-month-old son in 2018 has taken a charge bargain.
Kwin Boes pleaded guilty to domestic battery resulting in death and in exchange, the charges of aggravated battery resulting in death and neglect of a dependent resulting in death were dismissed.
The domestic battery charge resulting in death is a level 2 felony in Indiana. These crimes carry of sentence of anywhere from 10 to 30 years in prison, but the recommended sentence is 17 1/2 years.
In early June, Boes rejected a plea deal from the prosecutor; standing by his original claim that he did not kill his son.
Baby Parker’s mother Jamie spoke exclusively with 44News after the hearing Wednesday. She says she’s relieved the case won’t go to trial but she doesn’t think Boes is getting what he deserves.
Kwin Boes will be sentenced at 10 a.m. on July 3rd in Gibson County Superior Court.
