JACKSON, Tenn. - A man, who has been on the run since October 2012, is jailed in Jackson after he allegedly hit a child multiple times with a belt.

According to court documents, in October, the child's mother told police that she came home to find her boyfriend, Brandon Kinnie, who is now charged with aggravated child abuse, holding her son. Kinnie reportedly told her "You're going to be mad at me."

The mother said that Kinnie stated that her three year old son defecated in his pants and then Kinnie struck him multiple times with a belt.

The child was treated at a local emergency room where police reported that he had bruising and red marks on his face, head, neck and arms.

Kinnie turned himself in Wednesday night and is scheduled to appear in Jackson City Court on Friday.
