A man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly killing his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter. Deputies said 25-year-old Jose Zenaido Avevedo was at home with his girlfriend's young daughter while she was at work. Officers were called when the little girl was unconscious. The 2-year-old was flown to a hospital with severe head trauma. When asked about what happened to the 2-year-old, deputies said Acevedo gave multiple and varying accidental excuses that weren't consistent with the little girl's injuries. Acevedo was arrested for child abuse and aggravated assault booked into a Coconino county Detention Facility on Monday. The little girl was pronounced dead on Tuesday and Acevedo was arrested for homicide. Detectives are continuing to investigate.
