LAKELAND, Fla.--- A 22- year-old  Lakeland man will spend the rest of his life in prison for killing his girlfriends 4-year-old son in 2011.

Marton Pal accepted a plea deal with prosecutors Monday. His trial was scheduled for next week.

According to police, Pal made up a story and told police the 4-year-old was injured at the park, but an autopsy found the boy died from blunt force abdominal trauma.

According to Lakeland Ledger reports, Pal told police he was frustrated that the boy wasn't disciplined enough by his mother and he injured the boy to make up for the lack of discipline.
