24-year-old Aurora man pleads guilty to child abuse in death of 3-month old son


BRIGHTON, Colorado — A 24-year-old Aurora man has acknowledged causing the death of his 3-month-old son.

The Adams County District Attorney's Office says Martin Fernando Holguin Jr. pleaded guilty Thursday to child abuse resulting in death. A plea agreement calls for a prison sentence of between 20 and 32 years.

Police who were called to a home Sept. 16, 2013, found the man's son, Aiden Martin Holguin, unresponsive. The boy was taken to a hospital with a skull fracture and severe head trauma.

Holguin is scheduled to be sentenced March 18.
