Camp Verde man charged with child abuse - 08-12


Last week, the Camp Verde Marshal’s Office and Copper Canyon Fire responded to a home for a report of a 4-month old child that had fallen from an infant swing while in her father’s care. Officials say it was further discovered that the child may have suffered a head injury, so arrangements were made for the infant to be flown to Phoenix Children’s Hospital for treatment. The investigation determined misconduct played a factor in the injury. It was also found that that the child had suffered from several other suspicious injuries that were inconsistent with the father’s initial statement. 26-year old Edward Carrillo later admitted to detectives that he had caused the injuries to the child, and was subsequently arrested on 4-counts of aggravated assault and child abuse.
