Suburban Phoenix man pleads guilty to abuse of foster child

PHOENIX — A Goodyear man accused of injuring his 1-year-old foster
daughter for throwing her sippy cup and spilling its contents has pleaded
guilty.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman said Pedro Manzo entered his plea
to two counts of child abuse on Thursday and will be sentenced April 2.

According to Goodyear police, Manzo returned home Oct. 28 with his two
biological children and two foster children.

He told authorities that he later found his foster daughter slumped on the
floor and not breathing.

However, doctors at a hospital noticed the child had bruises on her head and
shoulder.

Police said Manzo admitted that he shook the girl and caused her to pass out.
