Prosecutors will seek 50 years in prison for a Lockwood man who has admitted charges in an infant death.

Jason Allen Badger, born in 1986, pleaded guilty to deliberate homicide on May 16.

Prosecutors will seek a term of 60 years in prison, with 10 suspended, according to a plea deal. Defense recommendations were not included in the agreement.

Badger caused the death of a 6-month-old in 2017 while babysitting the infant, he admitted in the plea agreement.

When the infant became inconsolable, “I lost my cool,” Badger wrote in his admission. Badger admitted to shaking the child and “slamming his head into another object.”

Sentencing has been set for July.
