Va. jury wants 50 yrs. in boy's death

By The Associated Press

A jury has recommended a 50-year sentence for a man convicted in the fatal beating of his former girlfriend's 3-year-old son.

The Henrico County Circuit Court jury on Thursday recommended the maximum sentence for 46-year-old Kevin M. Lucas.

Lucas was found guilty a day earlier of second-degree murder and felony child neglect in the April 2010 death of Christianreid Stephens.

An autopsy showed the child was struck more than 40 times.

Media outlets report Lucas will be sentenced on March 30.
