In a deeply emotional court session, Zachary McCaa, a 28-year-old Livingston County man, was sentenced to 22 years to life in prison for the murder of his two-month-old son, Caiden McCaa.

Judge Kevin Van Allen handed down the sentence, which also includes concurrent terms of five to 15 years for second-degree manslaughter and one year for endangering the welfare of a child.

The sentencing follows McCaa’s conviction in a trial that revealed the harrowing details of the abuse inflicted on his infant son in July 2022.

According to prosecutors, during a three-hour period when McCaa was alone with Caiden, he subjected the child to brutal physical abuse, resulting in fatal injuries.
