Teen sentenced for killing his girlfriend's toddler last summer

Cody Feran-Baum pleaded guilty earlier this year to second-degree unintentional murder in the death of Sophia O'Neill. He didn't speak at the sentencing but appeared unsteady enough that Hennepin County Judge William Koch asked if he needed to sit down.

Feran-Baum, who wore an orange jail outfit, had his back to spectators in the small courtroom. At one point, he was given a tissue.
