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.
