Patino Gets Life For Killing Child

Michael Patino will be spending the rest of his life in prison for the killing of a six-year-old Cranston boy in 2009.  Patino was convicted of causing a tear in Marco Nieves' intestine and other internal injuries through blunt force trauma.  Patino was convicted at trial, where prosecutors introduced text messages he reportedly sent admitting to the boy's mother that he had struck him.  Patino was convicted of second-degree murder at trial this past spring.
