Tampa Police say Timothy Gilley was angry when the little girl got into some Q-Tips and powder and made a mess all over the house. He took off the girl's diaper and spanked her bare bottom, leaving bruises and cuts.
Investigators say when Gilley's 16-year-old wife tried to stop the beating, he turned on her, dragging her by the hair to their bedroom. The arrest report says Gilley then grabbed the child and continued the spanking and once again, the teenage mother tried to make Gilley stop.
Detectives say Gilley violently attacked his wife, and tried to strangle her. Gilley faces numerous charges including child abuse, false imprisonment and battery. He is in the Hillsborough County Jail, but is being held with no bond because he was already on probation for various burglary and grand theft charges.
