Bossier City Man Sentenced to 39 Years at Hard Labor for Killing His Infant Son

Cory Hannon, 24, of Bossier City has been sentenced to 39 years at hard labor for killing his 13-month old son in March of 2016. Hannon pled guilty to manslaughter in July prior to his scheduled jury trial and faced up to 40 years in prison.

Following a pre-sentence investigation, Judge Parker Self sentenced Harris to 39 years at hard labor for killing the child. The sentence was imposed by the judge without benefit of probation, parole, or suspension of sentence.

In documents referenced at the sentencing hearing, Hannon admitted being responsible for the death of his young son, blaming his actions on years of drug abuse.

The autopsy report showed massive internal injuries from blunt force trauma that caused the death of the child, according to court records. On the day the baby was killed, the mother had already left for work and the grandmother came to pick up the child to keep him for the day.

Hannon handed the lifeless baby to the grandmother claiming that the baby was asleep, the proceedings said.

Efforts to revive the baby by the grandmother and Bossier City Fire Department were unsuccessful.

“Any time there is a death it is tragic but the death of a baby is one of the
toughest things we have to deal with” noted Bossier/Webster district attorney Schuyler Marvin. “I am pleased with how our office handled this case and we thank Judge Self for his diligent review of the pre-sentence investigation and of the statements submitted by the baby’s family.”

Speaking for the family, the grandmother Robin Bradford said, “We are glad it is over. Now my grandbaby can rest.”
