Goodyear man gets prison for child abuse of girl

PHOENIX — A Goodyear man has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison and
put on lifetime probation for injuring his 1-year-old foster daughter for
throwing her sippy cup and spilling its contents.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokeswoman say Pedro Manzo was sentenced
Friday by Judge Jeanne Garcia.

Manzo had pleaded guilty in February to two counts of child abuse.

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