January 24, 2009 4:14 pm by

Garnell Stevenson was sentenced to 30 years in prison with 15 suspended for the killing of 1-year-old Javon Deleo last summer in Creighton.

According to the RTD, the crime was reported by Javon’s 3-year-old sister:

The case turned on a statement made by Javon’s sister, who was found by a neighbor cowering in a bathtub. After the neighbor arrived to help the dying boy, the girl explained what happened: Javon “pooped on the stairs and ‘Nut’ beat him.” Nut is short for Peanut — Stevenson’s nickname.
