Posted: Updated:

An Oklahoma Court has upheld the conviction and life sentence of a 40-year-old man for the beating death of his 10-year-old stepson.

Lancey Darnell Ray is convicted of first degree murder.

Lawton police said Ray was arrested after he and his wife took to the boy to the hospital the day before he died.  Doctors said the head to toe bruises and strap marks on the boy's thighs and behind his ears were likely caused by abuse.

An autopsy showed the boy died from blunt force trauma.
