BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) – A Broken Arrow man has been arrested in the death of a 3-year-old boy who was in his care.

Thirty-four-year-old Jon Scarce was arrested Monday after being charged with child-abuse murder in the death of Chance Trepp.

The boy died after being admitted to a hospital earlier this month. Authorities say Scarce told police that Trepp had climbed a tree and fallen while Scarce was inside.
