    Details:

    On January 19, 2012 between 8:25 am and 9:37 am, 11 month old Nasir Milliner was at home in the custody and care of his mother's live in boyfriend Derron Brown. Nasir's mother had left home for a short period to run errands. Derron Brown has reportedly lived in the home for the past 7 months.

    A short time later, when Nasir's mother returned home, she noticed her son appeared to be unresponsive. EMS was notified and transported the child to Florida Hospital in Tampa where he later died.

    During the course of the investigation, detectives interviewed Derron Brown and he admitted that while he and the child were alone, he knowingly and intentionally struck the child's torso several times with his shoulder, forearm, head and closed fist.

    On January 20, 2012 the Hillsborough County Medical Examiners Office determined the child died due to blunt trauma impact to the torso with liver laceration and ruled the death a homicide.

    The mother has fully cooperated during the investigation. Derron Brown is being held in the Hillsborough County Jail with no bond and will make his first court appearance on Sunday morning at 8:00 am.
