WARREN, Ohio (WYTV) – A Warren man charged with abusing his two-month-old daughter pleaded guilty in court on Monday.

David Smith was scheduled for a pretrial in Trumbull County before Judge Peter Kontos. Instead, Smith pleaded guilty to his original charges.

Police arrested Smith following a 2018 investigation into injuries found on the child. She was taken to St. Joseph Hospital.  

Investigators say the girl had a human bite mark on her leg and healing fractured ribs.

Smith was sentenced to seven years on three counts of endangering a child and one count of felonious assault.
