Jury finds Lawton man charged with child abuse not guilty

LAWTON, Okla. (TNN) - A jury has found a Lawton man charged with child abuse by injury not guilty.

The verdict came down in Vito Asaro’s trial around 5:30 Monday evening.

Investigators say Asaro was babysitting a child in November 2017 when he called 911 and said the one-year-old wasn’t breathing.

He told them the child fell, while investigators say they found injuries caused by abuse that a simple fall would not have caused.
