TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Sapulpa man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for the shooting death of his 5-year-old son during a 17-hour standoff with police in Tulsa.

Court records show 38-year-old Bryon Creech was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty in August to first-degree murder and other charges.

Creech was charged with shooting Braydon Creech during the standoff at his wife’s apartment that ended March 19, 2015. Police said they continued negotiating with Creech because they believed the boy was alive, however the child was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head after Creech finally surrendered.

Creech and his wife were in divorce proceedings at the time and police were called by his wife, who reported he was violating a protective order by being in the apartment.
