OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) - An Ottumwa man has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for the brutal beating of a toddler under his care.

Dustin Dewayne Armstrong received the sentence Monday at Wapello County Courthouse. He agreed to a plea deal before his trial on multiple charges of child endangerment was scheduled to begin this year.

Prosecutors say in April 2013, the 20-year-old Armstrong grabbed Brayden Young's jaw and slammed his head against a wall. The then-two-year-old boy was later hospitalized with broken bones and extensive brain damage.

Armstrong was the boyfriend of Brayden's mother at the time. He was babysitting the toddler before the injury.
