A Chino Valley man pleaded guilty in connection with the abuse and death of a ten-year-old boy. Authorities were called to a home in the 12-hundred block of Poco Lane in Chino Valley back on June 8th, 2017. When police arrived they found Christian Pearson not breathing with second and third degree burns as well as other injuries. He was flown to Phoenix Children’s Hospital where he passed away after being on life support for three days. The boy’s mother, 35-year-old Juliana Moreno and her boyfriend 37-year-old Daniel Terry were arrested on child abuse and murder charges. Terry pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and multiple child abuse charges. Moreno is still going through court proceedings and is facing two counts of first-degree murder and other charges.
