LAWTON, Okla. (AP) - Lawton police officers have arrested a woman and her boyfriend in connection with her 18-month-old boy’s death last week.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said the 21-year-old mother has been arrested on suspicion of one count of child neglect. Her 27-year-old boyfriend faces a first-degree murder, after allegedly telling an investigator he accidentally stepped on the child.

The boy was found unresponsive and was taken to a Fredrick hospital, where he died. Medical personnel had tried for an hour to revive him.

An autopsy found the child had a skull fracture and a subdural hematoma, as well as bruises on his head. Based on the autopsy report, an agent with the state’s investigation bureau filed an arrest warrant for the woman and man.
