KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A Kalamazoo man has been given 5-1/2 to 15 years in prison for child abuse that led to the death of his 5 year old son, Tahj Lockett Jr.

Tahj Lockett Sr. had to be removed from the Courtroom when he lashed out verbally at the child’s mother during her victim impact statement.

Lockett pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter after admitting he was smoking marijuana on the day the boy died from injuries linked to abuse. In exchange for the plea, other charges were dropped.
