LINCOLN, Nebraska — A Lincoln man has been given prison time for severely beating his infant son last year.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( ) a district judge on Friday gave 23-year-old Anthony Souza four to five years in prison on a child abuse charge.

Police say Souza threw his six-month-old son into a bedroom in December, hitting him against a door frame and closet. The infant was found limp and unresponsive and spent several days in the hospital. The boy suffered several injuries including broken bones and skull fractures.

Souza pleaded no contest in May as part of a deal with prosecutors.
