Odessa Man Sentenced to 99 Years Behind Bars

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

A jury in Odessa has decided the fate for a man involved in the death of a toddler.

Segundo Ramirez was given 99 years in prison for one count of injury to a child and 30 years for another count of injury to a child by omission.

He was found not guilty on Wednesday of capital murder but was found guilty on the two other charges.

The jury had been deliberating all day.

He and his girlfriend, Jasmine Olivas, were arrested after Olivas' three-year-old son died.

Back in January of 2013, Omar Frias, Junior, was taken to the hospital after becoming unresponsive.

He was later airlifted to Fort Worth where he died.

An autopsy revealed the boy died from blunt force trauma to the stomach.
