Tucson Police have arrested a local child care provider, after detectives say bruises were found on the body of a three-year-old boy for whom she cares.

Police tell Tucson News Now, Toni Fierro, 48 was arrested last Thursday.

She was booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of child abuse.

A doctor who examined the boy says the bruises were caused by blunt-force trauma and were not accidental, as Fierro had claimed.
