Hayden Man Arrested For Child Abuse

HAYDEN, Idaho - An 18-year old Hayden, Idaho, man was arrested for child cruelty Sunday after deputies say he placed a 25-pound bag on his stepdaughter to stop her from moving.

Zacharee J. Wright said the youngster was unable to sleep, so he placed her face down on a concrete floor with no pillows or blankets and put a bag of dried drink mix on her legs, according to a report from Kootenai County Sheriff's Deputy Matthew Edmunds. The girl's exact age was unavailable but reports show she was born in 2009.

"Zacharee told me he placed this bag on her to keep her from being able to pull down glass jars and to keep her from moving so she would be able to sleep," Edmunds wrote.

Wright lives in the basement of the home at 1106 E. Whispering Pines with his wife and the girl's mother, Leann Wright.

A family member called police about 5:30 p.m. after discovering the girl whimpering in the basement storage room.

Wright told investigators he left the girl in the room for about 30 minutes and checked on her every 10 minutes.

The girl had red marks on her face and was dirty but not seriously injured, according to the report.

Wright remains in Kootenai County Jail on a felony charge of cruelty to children.
