Fitchburg Parents Charged With Murder, Manslaughter of 6-Year-Old Daughter

Monday, September 24, 2018

 

Fitchburg parents were indicted for the murder of their six-year-old daughter on Friday in Worcester, according to Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early Jr.

Shana Pedroso, 38, was indicted for murder while her husband, Marvin Brito, 38, was indicted for manslaughter.

The Incident

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner determined that the six-year-old girl died of blunt force injuries and that the manner of death was a homicide.

The girl had been found unresponsive by police at 139 Stoneybrook Road, Fitchburg, on April 10. She was transported to UMass-Memorial-HealthAlliance in Leominster where she was pronounced dead. Her 9-year-old brother, who was also home at the time, was transported to the hospital with several injuries.

The next day, Pedroso and Brito were arraigned in Fitchburg District Court on several assault and abuse charges. In August, they were indicted by a grand jury on charges related to the injuries suffered by the nine-year-old boy.

That case is pending.
