18-year-old pleads guilty to severely beating infant

HOLTON (KSNT) – A Jackson County teen is owning up to severely beating an infant.

Eighteen-year-old Koylen McKinney pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated battery, abuse of a child and aggravated endangerment of a child.

He was arrested in April.

Medics found the 7-month-old boy unresponsive at a Holton apartment complex. The infant was in a medically induced coma following the attack but was later released from the hospital.

Mckinney was 17 years old at the time of the incident but he’s being tried as an adult.

He faces more than 14 years in prison.
