Now, 65-year-old Stewart Greene of Lincoln, has been sentenced to serve 22 years to life in prison after being found guilty of murder, following the drowning death of 9-year-old Alex Robinson.
According to the police investigation, while the rest of the family members were at the supermarket, Greene took Robinson away from his Xbox.
He led him to the bathroom and drowned him in the bathtub.
When the rest of his family arrived home, they found the front door locked.
