ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Bernalillo County jury has convicted an Albuquerque man in a deadly child abuse case.

The district attorney’s office says Juan Galindo was convicted Thursday following an eight-day trial. He faced charges of child abuse resulting in death and aggravated criminal sexual penetration.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 12.

Galindo was arrested in December 2011 and charged in the death of a 4-week-old girl.

According to a criminal complaint, the child’s mother had been out shopping and at a casino. Galindo was watching the infant.

Authorities say the infant’s pajamas were soaked in blood and she had multiple injuries, including bite marks, a skull fracture and evidence of sexual abuse. Autopsy results showed numerous brain bleeds and rib fractures in different stages of healing.

Jurors deliberated for a half-day before reaching a verdict.
