A man who beat his ex-girlfriend’s 6-year-old son to death was sentenced today to 25 years to life in prison.

Marcas Catrell Fisher, 36, pleaded guilty last month to killing of Dae’von Bailey in a South Los Angeles home. Compton Superior Court Judge John Cheroske sentenced him to the maximum term in prison, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Marilyn Seymour.

Dae'von's bludgeoned body was found July 23 inside a home in the 800 block of East 87th Place. The boy's mother had left him in Fisher’s care.

Seymour said Fisher beat the boy for more than half an hour. Fisher fled the home after the killing and was arrested about a month later in Las Vegas.
