Judge sentences Nicholas Willies to 18 years in prison for child's death

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - A Green Bay man will spend 18 years in prison for causing the death of his girlfriend's two-year-old son.

Nicholas Willies struck a plea deal in June with Brown County prosecutors. He pleaded no contest to an amended charge of second-degree reckless homicide in the death of young Alex Fountain in January of last year.

The toddler died from head and abdominal injuries.

The 30-year-old Willies apologized to the Fountain family during his sentencing Monday. The boy's mother Juanita said Willies robbed the world of a beautiful, smiling child.

Circuit Judge Marc Hammer said Willies should not have been caring for the youngster, because he couldn't care for anyone but himself.

When he leaves prison, Willies must spend another 14 years under extended supervision.
