TULSA, Oklahoma – News 6

A man is facing a $5 million bond for being accused of killing his two-month-old son in Pawnee.

An affidavit said 2-month-old Logan was born prematurely and spent four weeks in the neonatal ICU before he came home.

Investigators said Colten Thompson was taking care of his son Logan while the baby’s mom was in the hospital recovering from COVID-19 last week.

It said Logan’s mom called and check on him every hour and all was good until Thompson told her he had grabbed Logan roughly and the boy wasn’t acting right.

Court documents show Logan had bruises on his face.

Thompson admitted to slapping the baby as many as 10 times the previous few weeks.

Investigators said Logan suffered two brain bleeds, a skull fracture and brain swelling.

Logan died from his injuries.

Thompson has been charged with first-degree murder and child abuse.

Thompson will be in court on Tuesday, December 14.
