SALEM -- A 24-year-old Salem man who fatally injured his girlfriend's 4-year-old boy for spilling beer pleaded guilty Tuesday to manslaughter and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Gerardo Chavarria admitted in Marion County Circuit Court that he hit the boy's head against the floor in November 2011 in anger over the boy spilling Chavarria's beer.

The Statesman Journal reports the boy, Sebastian Iturbe, died of head injuries at a Portland hospital.
