    Two southwest Florida parents are facing child abuse charges after authorities say they used a stun gun to discipline their children.

    The News-Press reports that 28-year-old Joshua Pierre Louis and 33-year-old Roxanne Paduani were arrested Thursday.

    The Department of Children and Families began investigating following a call to the Florida Abuse Hotline.

    A Lee County Sheriff's Office arrest reports says one of the four children at the Lehigh Acres home told a DCF investigator that Louis would use a Taser on them when they were bad and showed the investigator scars.

    The ages of the children weren't immediately reported.

    Louis and Paduani were each being held on $200,000 bail. Jail records didn't list an attorney.
