No plea deal in boy’s death

Staff, wire reportsMarch 17, 2013 

Salyersville: A judge has rejected a plea deal for a man charged in the death of his 4-year-old son.

WYMT-TV reported that James Garcia had agreed in February to plead guilty to reckless homicide in the 2011 death of Cameron Mullins in exchange for a 16-month sentence. Garcia was originally charged with manslaughter in the case.

A medical examination determined the boy died of a head injury, but he had several injuries to other areas of his body as well.
