A father in Oklahoma is facing murder charges after police found the body of his infant son.

The case began back in February, when police responded to a domestic abuse call.

They say Victor Minjarez assaulted the mother of his son, 7-month-old Jody Minjarez.

According to authorities, Minjarez fled with the baby.

KFOR reports that days later, the mother obtained a protective order mandating the boy be returned to her. An Amber Alert was issued for the child. 

Wednesday, police arrested Minjarez at a residence, where the boy’s body was also found. Minjarez is charged with first degree murder and desecrating a human corpse.
