HILLSBORO — A Washington County man convicted of killing his 11-week-old son and abusing the boy’s twin brother was sentenced Friday to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 28 years.
Kaliq Mansor, 34, was sentenced two weeks after jurors found him guilty of murder, murder by abuse, assault and criminal mistreatment.
Mansor called 911 in June 2011 to report his son Bryan was not breathing. Doctors diagnosed the baby with abusive head trauma and he died two days later. Doctors also examined Bryan’s twin, Ethan, and discovered injuries caused by abuse, including six broken ribs that appeared to be at different stages of healing.
As part of the investigation, detectives seized Mansor’s computer and checked his Internet search history.
Mansor’s Google searches three days before Bryan went to the hospital included terms such as “afraid of abusing my baby," “how do I deal with screaming baby," “Oregon child abuse laws" and “father hates infant."
Defense attorney Russell Barnett argued during the trial that Mansor’s Internet history represented his curiosity, not proof of criminal conduct. He said he plans to appeal the conviction.
Mansor told the court he would spend his time in prison mentoring and teaching other inmates.
