Marlow man charged with abusing infant

Marlow_A horrific child abuse case out of Stephens County ---a father accused of causing over a dozen fractures to his two-month-old son.

Tuesday, the Stephens County prosecutor charged Christopher Easley, 32, with child abuse by injury after investigators say easley broke his son's arms and squeezed the infant to help him go to the bathroom.

Police say it happened at the home where easley lived with his girlfriend and her parents.

Police were alerted to the injured child after he was rushed to the hospital by Easley and his girlfriend. An x-ray revealed the baby suffered multiple fractures inconsistent with how Easley said they happened. So far, only Easley has been arrested.

In court documents, Easley described to investigators how he pulled the infant's limbs until they popped, squeezed him so tightly his ribs broke, and forced  his closed fist into his son's stomach to help him use the restroom.

Police say Easley's girlfriend told them she had no idea the abuse was taking place and that Easley told her he believed their son's arm was swollen after he rolled over on it and broke it himself under his own weight.

She says the only thing she ever witnessed her boyfriend do was spank their two-month-old in an effort to discipline him.

Police had Easley demonstrate to them with a toy doll what he was doing to the child when the injuries occurred. With that doll, he showed police how he held him too tightly, picked up with only one limb when he was irritated with the baby's crying.

Stephens County District Attorney Jason Hicks says this is the most egregious crime he's ever been involved with and is furious with the circumstances. He says he will prosecute this case to the fullest degree and says the court's maximum punishment will not come close to what Easley deserves.
