LISBON, N.D. (AP) - A Lisbon man is charged with murder in the death of his infant son.

Thirty-five-year-old Byron Whetsel is accused of squeezing 1-month-old Kyle Whetsel to death in October. An autopsy found fractures on the baby’s ribs and bleeding on his brain.

Byron Whetsel could face life in prison without parole in convicted of murder. He also faces two felony child abuse counts.

Court documents do not list an attorney for him, and a home telephone listing could not be found.
