Garvin Co. Man Facing Child Abuse Charges

09-12-06 - A Wynnewood man is facing charges for abusing his 2-year-old son.

The Garvin County D.A. says 25-year-old Joshua Lee Kettler brought his son to a Pauls Valley hospital over Labor Day weekend with a fractured leg.

When the D.H.S. stepped in, authorities took the child to an Oklahoma City hospital where doctors determined the child also had a fractured skull and cracked rib.

Kettler is being investigated for similar allegations in Texas. D.H.S. is also interviewing the child's mother.
