2 charged with child abuse

PALATKA, Fla. – Two people have been charged with neglect of a child causing great bodily harm Friday.

The parents of a baby, 25-year-old Patricia Ann Barney and 28-year-old Michael Bynoe, were arrested following an investigation by the Palatka Police Department.

The investigation began when officials received a tip through the Child Abuse Hotline on December 15. An examination at the Putnam Community Medical Center revealed multiple fractures of a suspicious nature, according to a Plataka Police Department press release. The child was removed from the parents and transferred to another facility for treatment.

Barney and Bynoe are held at the Putnam County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
