STROUDSBURG -- A homicide trial began Wednesday in Monroe County for a father accused of beating his son so badly, it caused his death more than two decades later.

Christopher Barber was sentenced to 5 to 10 years in prison for causing permanent brain damage to his 2-month-old son back in 1992.

His son remained in a vegetative state and on life support until May of 2015 when he died.

The coroner later ruled he died from the injuries he received as baby.
