The Clay County Sheriff says he believes the best possible outcome has happened, surrounding a child killer's plea bargain.
19-year-old George Coty Wayman was charged with the shooting death of 3-year-old Dominic Castro last May, in a trailer in southern Clay County.
And, after pleading guilty to capital murder of a person under 10 years of age, he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
The alternative to the life sentence for capital murder is a death sentence.
"I believe the just punishment was dished out. I certainly think this young man's lost his life for the rest of his life and this young boy's lost his life. Like I said, there's no winners in this, and I think it's the best outcome that could have happened, " said Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons.
Witnesses originally told deputies Dominic had been jumping on the bed when a gun went off and he was shot in the head.
Not long after that, though the Clay County sheriff said a witness told deputies Wayman actually pointed the gun at the little boy and told him he'd shoot him if he did not stop jumping on the bed.
That's when Sheriff Kenny Lemons said Wayman fired a shot and hit Dominic in the back of the head.
