MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) - Police in Midwest City say a 2-month-old girl has died of numerous injuries and her 25-year-old father arrested on a first-degree murder complaint.
Police Chief Brandon Clabes says Brylee Watson died Monday at the University of Oklahoma Children's Medical Center. Clabes says the girl was taken to the hospital about 10:45 p.m. Friday after a call to paramedics that she wasn't breathing.
Clabes says Jacob Watson was caring for his daughter when he called 911. The chief says Watson told detectives three different stories about what had happened before admitting he abused the girl because he was upset with his deteriorating relationship with his wife.
Clabes says he doesn't know if Watson has yet hired an attorney.
