— Diontay Deshone Williams, 25, pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree murder in the death of his 7-month-old son.

In August 2007, Cary police, fire and emergency medical personnel responded to a call from Williams’ house, of 1307 Castalia Drive, saying the child was in distress. The child was taken to Western Wake Hospital, where he died from his injuries.

The plea came as Williams was in the middle of his murder trial at the Wake County Courthouse. He was sentenced to nine to 12 years in prison.
