Death of baby leads to arrest of father

A Lawton man has been arrested on the suspicion that he abused his infant son.  Police arrested the man late Sunday night and since then, the 7 month old boy has died.  Investigators say the baby was a victim of some type of blunt force trauma. 

Details are very limited at this time because non one has been charged with the infant's death, so no names are being released.  The child's grandfather told 7News that he's in shock about the news of his grandson's death.  "I was surprised yesterday morning after the baby died," he said.

According to a source close to the family, the couple lives in a North Lawton apartment complex where the source say the incident occurred.  The source said that the mother of the infant was getting off work Sunday night when the father brought the baby to come pick her up.  The source said that when the mother went to pick up the baby, she noticed something wasn't right.  So, a neighbor called for help.

According to the police report, the baby had injuries consistent with blunt trauma to the chest and abdomen.  The examiner believes it could have been caused by throwing the child or forcefully hitting the baby.  Detectives say they expect some type of charges to be filed against the father first thing Wednesday.  Until then, he remains behind bars.
