Ardmore Child Dies - Mother Arrested

8-5-05 - Ardmore police are investigating a suspicious death of an 8-month old infant. They arrested the 21-year-old mom, Jennifer Pfeger, and her 22-year-old boyfriend Joseph Wilson for child neglect.

The mother alerted a neighbor Friday afternoon at a mobile home park in the 900 block of Lake Murray Drive. She told the neighbor she’d awoke from a nap to find the 8-month-old boy dead. Other neighbors say the mother told them the baby fell and hit his head on a table.

Police say there are no obvious physical signs of trauma to the child.

The family moved to Ardmore from Montana about 6 months ago. Police have already learned that the family does have a history with DHS out of Montana.

The infant's body will be examined in Oklahoma City to determine a cause of death.
