(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 20 - A Naples judge on Monday confirmed the detention of Mariano Cannio, a 38-year-old domestic accused of killing a four-year-old boy by deliberately dropping him from the balcony of a third-floor apartment in the southern city last Friday.
    Cannio has made a partial admission, saying he dropped the boy, whose name was Samuele, while holding him in his arms after feeling dizzy, in a statement given on Friday evening.
He said he fled the scene and went to eat a pizza after this had happened. (ANSA).
