Roscommon County Man Sentenced in Baby’s Murder

A Roscommon County man charged with killing a baby by bathing him in scalding hot water will spend at least 37 years in prison. The 1 year old boy died in April after Bradley O'Neil gave him a bath at a Denton Township apartment complex. On Tuesday, a judge sentenced O'Neil to at least 37 and a half years in prison, but he could spend up to 60 years behind bars. In December, O'Neil pleaded no contest to second degree murder charges. O'Neil bathed Clayton Mead on April 8th in scalding hot water. Clayton died two days later.
