DENVER (AP) - A 27-year-old man accused of killing his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son in suburban Denver has pleaded guilty to child abuse and faces up to 48 years in prison.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/8sMYIj ) Ever Lopez-Calidonio entered his plea Friday and is scheduled to be sentenced May 22.

Lakewood police were called after neighbors saw Lopez-Calidonio hitting the child’s chest in a parking lot Oct. 2, 2014. When they arrived the boy, named J.R., was unresponsive.

An autopsy determined that he died of severe blunt-force injuries to his body, including his head.

Lopez-Calidonio faces between 36 and 48 years in prison.
