The Bucks County Courier Times ( http://bit.ly/TTocEC) says 27-year-old Adrian Allen of Levittown pleaded guilty Tuesday in Bucks County to third-degree murder and child endangerment in the March 7 death of Barbara Adams in Bensalem.
He also pleaded no contest to first-degree murder and told the child's mother in court that he was sorry "from the bottom of my heart."
Prosecutors said the child had numerous broken bones, bruises, burns and a brain hemorrhage.
Judge Diane Gibbons said the toddler died in a "brutal, vicious attack." She said the child's life was short and pain-filled, and she hoped Allen's life was long "and I hope you suffer."
