Quote:A man accused of killing a newborn baby because the child was interrupting his video game has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
Rene Edward Barrios entered his plea Thursday and will be sentenced to somewhere between 10.5 and 21 years in prison on Sept. 30 by Pima County Superior Court Judge Richard Fields.
Barrios, 26, was living with Jaden Encinas' mother on Oct. 26, 2007, when she left their apartment to run errands.
She told police her 18-day-old baby was sleeping on their bed when she left.
Prosecutors allege that when the child started to cry, Barrios paused his video game, went into the bedroom and shook the baby and hit him in the head.
Barrios left the baby comatose on the bed and spent the next five to 10 minutes finishing his game, authorities said.
When Barrios went back into the bedroom, the baby was blue and he called 911.
Police said the baby wasn't breathing when firefighters arrived at the apartment and the child was pronounced dead at the hospital.
