FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) – A man accused of scalping his baby will spend four years behind bars.

Kodi Weatherspoon, of Fairborn, entered a guilty plea Thursday for felonious assault and misdemeanor child endangering.

A judge sentenced him immediately.

Investigators say when they arrived at Weatherspoon’s home last June, his wife was bloodied and beaten, and his infant son had a two to three inch piece of scalp missing.
