GIBSON COUNTY, Ind. (CNN/Meredith) -- A punch to the face, seemingly out of nowhere, greeted Kwin Boes as he walked out of an Indiana courtroom Wednesday.
Boes was just sentenced to 20 years in prison for the death of his 3-month-old son last year.
As Boes made his exit, the baby’s uncle, Matt Hartley, hurled himself at Boes in the hallway.
Law enforcement ushered Boes from the scene while Hartley was handcuffed.
Hartley now faces a battery charge.
Boes pleaded guilty to domestic battery last month, getting him less jail time.
