BETHANY, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma County prosecutors have charged a convicted burglar with beating his ex-girlfriend’s son to death while baby-sitting the boy.
The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1G6LwGp ) that 22-year-old Dustin Melvin Davison was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of Kreedin Paul Brooks on May 18.
Prosecutors say the 2-year-old boy suffered a fractured skull, a brain injury and internal abdominal injuries, and had bruises on multiple areas of his body. Police say doctors also found older injuries consistent with abuse.
Records indicate Davison spent a few months in prison last year and was still on probation for a 2011 burglary conviction.
Police reported Davison gave conflicting accounts about the boy’s injury, at first saying he was in the shower and didn’t see what happened.
