SPRING HILL (FOX 13) -

A Hernando County detention deputy was behind bars this morning, charged with child abuse and child neglect.

Detectives say a 3-year-old boy was taken to a hospital in Spring Hill with severe burns on Friday.

They say Deputy Cody Marrone first told them the boy burned himself with a blow dryer. But detectives say Marrone later admitted that he burned the boy as punishment for not going to sleep.

It's still not clear what Marrone's relationship is to the boy.

Marrone is being held on $20,000 bond.
