MICHIGAN CITY – A Michigan City man convicted of killing his newborn son was sentenced to 60 years in prison on Thursday, but not before having an outburst that infuriated the judge.

Before his sentence was even pronounced in La Porte Superior Court 1, Brandon Lee Bottom attempted to storm out of his own video-conferenced sentencing hearing – despite being in police custody at the La Porte County Jail.
