COLORADO SPRINGS - A Colorado Springs father was sentenced to life in prison for second-degree murder related to the killing of his 4-year-old son. The sentence also indicates that Ralph will serve without the possibility of parole.
Jeremy Ralph was sentenced today after being found guilty in August of 2017.
A jury in Colorado Springs has found Jeremy Ralph guilty of second-degree murder for killing his 4-year-old son.
The jury also found him guilty of first-degree murder of a person in a position of trust and child abuse.
