Man Gets Prison Time for Beating Child with Belt

- A Wichita Falls man is sentenced to prison time after being convicted of beating a five-year-old child with a belt.

Forty-five year-old Larry Murphy Jr. pleaded guilty to injury to a child.

He's sentenced to four years in prison.

An arrest affidavit states teachers at a Wichita Falls school became concerned when they saw red marks on the boy's face.

They say the child said Murphy hit him with a belt because of a bad mark he received in school.

Upon further investigation, CPS officials say they also found marks on the child's arms, neck, back, and chest.
