Albuquerque father sentenced for beating his daughter to death

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A man is behind bars after beating his two-year-old daughter to death. Michael Garcia was arrested two years ago following the death of his daughter, Diana McGrory. Investigators said evidence showed the girl suffered ongoing abuse, including burns and bruises all over her body and bleeding on her brain.

At Friday’s hearing, prosecutors read statements from family members who said Garcia betrayed the trust placed in him by his family and the country. “He would provide a home, shelter, security and hope for the future. That was clear when Mr. Garcia did offer death, torture, starvation and mental anguish.”

Garcia pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and admitted abusing injuries to other children in the home. Under the terms of the plea agreement, he was sentenced to 28 years in prison.
