MT MORRIS TOWNSHIP (WJRT) -

(03/13/13) - A Mt. Morris Township father, charged with child abuse and murder in the death of his 6-month-old son, has pleaded "no contest" to manslaughter.

19-year-old Lensley Martin Junior was set to go to trial, but his attorney Frank Manley says they felt it was too great of a risk.

Martin accepted an agreement reached with prosecutors and will be sentenced next month.

His infant son, Lensley Martin the third, died in September of 2011.

Investigators said then they believed the baby died of blunt force trauma to the head.
