Police mug shots

Adrian Ponce , 21, was arrested July 24, in the death of his girlfriend’s 8-month-old daughter, Phoenix police say.

Sabrina Santos-Vasquez was pronounced dead at a hospital after authorities received a call about a child not breathing. Emergency room medical personnel found burns and other trauma on the child’s body, the Associated Press reported.

Ponce faces eight felony counts of child abuse.

Ponce was arrested after being interviewed by detectives. He’s not the child’ birth father.
