In June, Tyler Mason pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and endangering the welfare of children in the death of Aiden Lombardi.

The initial incident took place in February of 2019.

According to a criminal complaint, Lombardi’s mother (Mason’s ex-girlfriend) told police she left her son with Mason but later got a call saying the child was unresponsive.

Police said the boy's skull was fractured and his face was heavily bruised; Lombardi later died at the hospital.

A doctor told detectives that he felt the boy was intentionally hurt.
