Phoenix Man Pleads Not Guilty in Abuse Case

Posted:

PHOENIX (AP) — A Phoenix man accused of harming his infant son last month has pleaded not guilty.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 29-year-old Taylor Jose Basilio entered his plea Monday. His initial pretrial conference is scheduled for Feb. 21.

Basilio was arrested on suspicion of child abuse after doctors discovered that his 7-week-old son had several broken bones and a fractured skull.

Authorities say Basilio and his wife brought their child to a pediatrician Dec. 5 to receive a flu shot because he had a stuffy nose.

During the visit, the doctor noticed that the boy was underweight and had him further evaluated at hospital. That's when the broken bones and skull fracture were discovered.
