Man convicted of killing 2 year old Grand Rapids girl | News
Grand Rapids, Mich. (WZZM) A jury this morning found a man guilty in the 2005 murder of a two-year-old girl.
New evidence and witnesses led to the arrest of Pedro Navarro, nearly seven years after the death of Aiyana Cisneros. In 2005, police found the girl, unresponsive, in her Curtis Street home.
Aiyana's mother, Samantha Winkler, pleaded guilty to second degree murder, for failing to get medical attention for her child. But prosecutors said Navarro, Winkler's then-boyfriend, is the one who beat Aiyana to death. Navarro faces mandatory life in prison.
He will be sentenced on September 4th.
