Man Faces 17 Years For Causing Young Child’s Death

A Redding man who killed a child five years ago has made a plea deal with prosecutors. 33-year-old Sovanny Phanny Lorm entered a plea of no contest on Friday to voluntary manslaughter, kidnapping and child abuse causing great bodily injury. Lorm was responsible for the death by traumatic brain injury of a one-year-old child who Lorm was supposed to be caring for. When he’s sentenced in August, Lorm will get a sentence of 17 years in state prison. He must serve at least 85% of that sentence before being eligible for parole.
