TULSA, OK - A woman's boyfriend was arrested Wednesday accused of murdering her 3-year old Tulsa boy, Jace Burgess.
Cody Keith Sartin, 29, is being held in Tulsa County Jail on without bond for first-degree murder.
Burgess filed a protective order against Sartin the night she was at work and Jace was home alone with Sartin.
The affidavit explains exactly what happened the night before Jace died:
"Ms. Burgess fed and bathed the child and put him to bed at 8:30 pm."
"Ms. Burgess received a text message from the defendant at 11:30 pm stating that the child had fallen out of bed."
"The Defendant called 9-1-1 to report that the child was found with his eyes half open and his breathing was not normal."
Tests revealed the boy had dozens of bruises all over his body.
"The Defendant inflicted abusive injuries on the child which led to the child's death."
Tulsa Police Child Crisis also reporting Sartin was a suspect in another baby injury in Payne County.Court records show the mother of that child filed a protective order against him in March 2003, but charges were dropped.
The mother told FOX23 in an e-mail: "This is not the first baby's he's hurt. He gave my daughter shaken baby syndrome when she was 5-months old. Thankfully, she survived.”
