ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) - An Ector County man will spend 40 years in prison.
James Carroll plead guilty to two counts of injury to a child.
Carroll's wife, Tonya, received 50 years in prison earlier this month.
The report says the two did not properly feed their son and possibly even starved him, along with hitting the boy several times.
District Attorney Bobby Bland was happy they did not have to force the boy to testify against his parents and was still able to attain near maximum sentences.
