A Silver Springs man was jailed Saturday in the death of a 2-year-old boy there last week.

Cody Wallace, 22, is being held in the Lyon County Jail on suspicion of felony first-degree murder and child abuse.

According to Sheriff Allen Veil, paramedics were called to a home on Winchester Road in Silver Springs at 3:11 p.m. Nov. 23 on a report of a boy having difficulty breathing.

The child was taken by ambulance to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center. He was later transferred to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno, where he died.

Wallace, who was dating the boy’s mother, was home alone with the child at the time. He was arrested after an autopsy, the results of which were not released.

Wallace is being held without bail.
