Ogema Man Sentenced in Killing of Three-Year-Old

The charges stem from the October 2015 death of Steven Warren at the couple's home on the White Earth Indian Reservation

 

OGEMA, Minn. — A man who pleaded guilty in the fatal beating of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Sterling Andersen, 24, of rural Ogema, avoided a possible life prison term by pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

The charges stem from the October 2015 death of Steven Warren at the couple’s home on the White Earth Indian Reservation.

Andersen told authorities he punched and kneed the toddler because the boy wouldn’t stop crying.
