May 30, 2019

STANLEY, N.D. (AP) — A Fargo man has pleaded guilty to murdering his girlfriend’s 6-month-old son in Stanley.

Cody Faltersack entered his plea Thursday in Mountrail County court.

Authorities alleged Faltersack was alone with the child last November when emergency crews responded to a report of an unresponsive child. The boy later died at a Minot hospital of brain trauma.

A manslaughter charge against Faltersack earlier was upgraded to murder.

Faltersack faces life in prison. KXMC-TV reports sentencing is scheduled for August.
