BRANDON TOWNSHIP, Mich. A 27-year-old Oakland County man will spend the rest of his life in prison in the death of his ex-girlfriend's 4-month-old son.

Donald Raleigh was sentenced Wednesday in Oakland County Circuit Court. He was charged with first-degree felony murder and first-degree child abuse in the slaying of Dominic Carrette.

Dominic was dropped Oct. 25, 2012 on the basement floor of the Brandon Township home Raleigh shared with Ashley Spencer, the child's mother. Dominic later died at a hospital. An autopsy listed the cause of death as blunt force trauma to the head.

Raleigh was the only adult in the home at the time.
