Colorado man convicted in death of 3-month-old daughter
GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado man has been convicted in the January 2016 death of his 3-month-old daughter.
The Greeley Tribune reports a Weld County jury Monday found 33-year-old Edward Berdan guilty on one count of child abuse knowingly or recklessly causing death.
Berdan and his wife had taken their daughter Alexis to a Loveland hospital after the infant showed seizure-like symptoms.
Medical personnel told Evans police that the child had several broken ribs and two brain bleeds. The infant later died at an Aurora hospital.
Berdan told police his daughter fell onto the floor on one occasion. He claimed she was also injured when he slipped and fell.
Medical officials told police that there was no evidence to support Berdan’s claims.
Berdan is scheduled to be sentenced in March.
