PAULS VALLEY, Okla. (AP) - A Paoli man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his 2-month-old son.
Garvin County prosecutors filed the charge Monday against 28-year-old Johnny Ray Speerbrecher. He was ordered jailed without bond following arraignment Tuesday.
Court documents show no attorney for Speerbrecher and he has not yet entered a plea.
Authorities say Speerbrecher was caring for his son - Brody Speerbrecher - on March 9 when the child suffered blunt force head trauma that led to his death.
Police say the child's mother returned home about 10:30 a.m. to find the baby not breathing. The infant died later at a Pauls Valley hospital.
