JONESBORO, AR  (KAIT) – A Brookland man plead guilty to first degree murder of his one month old baby boy Wednesday morning in Craighead County Circuit Court. According to Prosecutor Scott Ellington's Office, Sidney Andy Campbell will spend 26 years in prison for the crime.

Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd said the boy died of blunt force trauma to the head. He said Sidney and the boy's mother, Jennifer, did not immediately notify police.

Sidney Campbell will be handed over to the Arkansas Department of Correction, with nearly 200 days credit for time already served at the Craighead County Jail. He had waived his right to a jury trial.

Sidney's wife, Jennifer, will appear in court February 18th on charges of hindering apprehension.
