(GREENSBURG) - A Greensburg man pleaded guilty to murder charges Thursday in the death of his girlfriend's 12-year-old son.

Waldo "Lynn" Jones Jr. was charged with the June 3, 2011, murder of 12-year-old Devin Parsons.

Devin's mother, Tasha Parsons, pleaded guilty to the crime in July and was sentenced to 60 years.

Tasha Parsons, 30, admitted to using her hands, feet, a belt and a metal tray to beat her son over a period of several hours while Jones watched, police said.

Tasha Parsons told investigators that the boy had taken some Percocet pills and would not tell her where to find them, officials said.

Jones' sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 12.

Decatur Superior Court Judge Matthew Bailey will determine Jones' sentence, which is expected to be 45 to 65 years.
