Second trial — same outcome as the first.
Kevin Towles sentenced to die once again by an Etowah judge. The sentence handed down Tuesday after Towles was again convicted of beating his girlfriend’s five year old son to death. He was convicted and sentenced to die once before, but an appeals court ordered a new trial. Once again, the same result. The boy’s mother has also pleaded guilty to felony murder for not protecting the boy or getting care for him after he was beaten.
