(KMOV.com) --Twenty-six-year-old Kraig Monroe Jr. of Belleville pleaded guilty Monday in St. Clair County to a felony count of aggravated battery of a two-year-old.

The victim, Amanda Runyon, was beaten so severely that doctors at one point worried she would need a feeding tube the rest of her life.

Following the sentencing, the families of Monroe and the victim squared off in the parking garage. Police rushed in to break up dispute, which reportedly was only a shouting match.
