DCFS investigating allegations of abuse involving Fairfield parents

FAIRFIELD, IL (WFIE) -

We're learning the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is investigating two Fairfield parents.

This comes after police arrested 28-year-old Shannon Cone last month.

He was accused of beating his 7-week-old baby.

Then just last week, Cone pleaded guilty to a negotiated charge of reckless conduct and was released from jail and put on probation.

Now, DCFS reps tell us they're looking into allegations of abuse involving Cone and the baby's mother.

We're told the child is in protective custody.
