American Fork Man Who Killed His Infant Son Will Spend Life in Prison

Posted September 11th, 2013 @ 11:16am by Talk Radio 105.7 FM / 570 AM

Joshua Petersen, 21 --the man accused of shooting his 5 month old son to death in April -- will spend the rest of his life in prison.

He entered a guilty plea this week, to avoid the death penalty.

He will not have the opportunity to be paroled.

Police say Petersen attempted to kill himself -- after killing Ryker -- but a family member stopped him.
