BAY CITY, MI (AP) -
A man who killed a 4-year-old boy on a central Michigan Indian reservation is asking for a 35-year prison sentence, five years under the maximum in his deal with prosecutors.
Anthony Bennett returns Thursday to Bay City federal court. He pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in December, admitting he delivered a fatal punch to Carnel Chamberlain and then burned the body.
Bennett lived on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Reservation with the boy and the boy's mother. Carnel was killed in 2012.
In a court filing Monday, attorney John Shea says Bennett has taken responsibility and will accept the "just consequences." Bennett can withdraw his guilty plea and go to trial if Judge Thomas Ludington chooses a prison sentence beyond 40 years.
