FORT MYERS, Fla. — Investigators say back in 2017, Damien Palmer beat his girlfriend's son while she was not home.

Palmer told his girlfriend the boy had a seizure on the trampoline.

However, doctors say the little boy had extensive bleeding and significant brain swelling.

The boy died days later.

Palmer will spend the rest of his life in prison for the death of the little boy in North Fort Myers.
