A Mesa man entered a guilty plea to manslaughter Thursday for the 2007 death of his infant son.

The Maricopa County Superior Court says two other counts against 24-year-old Gregory McMillan will be dismissed at sentencing Oct. 15.

Superior Court paperwork shows 2-month-old Gregory Friederich died at St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix on Aug. 24, 2007.

Mesa police said doctors suspected child abuse after examining the baby and finding a fractured skull, broken ribs and injured liver.

Detectives questioned McMillan. They said McMillan admitted losing his temper and hurting the baby.
