A Fort Payne man was charged with seriously abusing a toddler.

Police said at this point they can release very few details because it's still under investigation.

Luis Humberto Corona, 31, is charged with aggravated child abuse.

According to court records, Corona is the parent, stepparent or guardian of the 15-month-old victim.

The complaint said on September 25, Corona tortured, willfully abused, or cruelly beat the child.

Warrants were taken out on Corona and he was arrested on October 22.

Corona appeared before a district judge on October 25 and bond was set at $100,000.

The judge ordered Corona not to have contact with the victim or the victim's family.

He has since been released on bond.
