A Salina man has pleaded no contest to first-degree murder in the beating death of a toddler.

The Salina Journal reports that 28-year-old Antonio M. Brown Sr. pleaded no contest Wednesday in Saline County court to first-degree murder during commission of a felony. Brown also pleaded no contest to two counts of child abuse in connection with the 2011 beating death of 14-month-old Clayden Lee Urbanek.

Saline County District Judge Rene Young set sentencing for Feb. 12.

The child's mother, 21-year-old Brittney Betzold, was sentenced earlier this month to about 13 years in prison for second-degree murder and for not intervening to stop Brown from abusing the child before his death.
