In an emotional outburst, the brother of a man convicted of killing his own child punched him in the court. The incident, that was caught on camera showed Jeremiah Hartley, the brother of Kwin Boes lunging out, slamming Boes on the wall as he punches him. Boes looks confused and terrified as the police take him away to safety. It leaves him bloody and shocked. The officers are also seen holding down Hartley who looks very angry. He had to be held down by three people and was cuffed before they let him off the ground. 

"He’s going through some things. He’s upset anyway. That really upset him just to see him come out, I don't know if he heard how much time he got or if he was just upset about his nephew. This is a horrible crime," said Lisa Hartley, three-month-old Parker Boes' grandmother to WEVV. Hartley was reportedly given 179 days in jail for contempt, with misdemeanor battery charges from the state.

Boes was convicted in the death of three-month-old Parker Boes, Hartley's nephew, who died because of blunt force trauma to the head. The father was sentenced to 25 years on three counts of domestic battery resulting in death. He was given 19 years of prison time and six years on work release as part of a plea deal. 

The child had been taken to the hospital after he became unresponsive in an incident that occurred last year. The hospital was unable to revive him. He was then airlifted to a different facility but doctors could not save him. Boes had told authorities that Parker had fallen off his pillow and hit his head and died. However, the coroner had confirmed that it was a homicide and not an accident. 

"Parker was such a sweetheart. He smiled all the time. He was just a happy baby. He wasn’t even three months old yet," said Lisa. She was outside the court when the brawl happened.
