Vienna father pleads guilty to child abuse in infant’s death

A Vienna father pleaded guilty to child abuse Tuesday in connection with the death of his 2-month-old daughter in December.

Francis Reed, 22, of the 1500 block of Red Rock Court, could face up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in October.

On Dec. 10, Fairfax County police said they were called to a home in the 7500 block of Parkwood Court in Falls Church, where CPR was being performed on Reed’s young daughter, Amber Reed.

Police said Amber’s injuries were brought about by Francis Reed, but declined to discuss them. The infant was rushed to the hospital, but died two days later.
