PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix man faces a June 5 sentencing in the 2011 shaking death of his 4-month-old daughter.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman says Amos Andreas pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder and attempted child abuse.

The girl died Aug. 15, 2011, three weeks after Andreas and the girl's mother took her to Phoenix Children's Hospital on July 22.

Andreas said the girl was sleeping on his chest when she fell on the floor the night before.

However, a forensic pediatrician found that the girl's injuries were consistent with being shaken.
