OKLAHOMA CITY - A seven-week-old infant police say was abused by his father died Wednesday after being taken off life support.
Oklahoma City police say Corbin Whitlow, who was declared brain dead and taken off life support, died about 5:30 p.m. Charles Whitlow, 20, was arrested after he and the boy’s mother brought the child to Deaconess Hospital on Monday night.
A nurse told police Corbin had bruising to the right side of his temple and what appeared to be a bite mark on his right forearm. The child’s mother told police she was in the shower and left the boy in the care of Whitlow.
She said she heard the baby crying while taking a shower but didn't think it was unusual. After 15 minutes, Whitlow got the mother out of the shower and told her that "the baby was whitish and yellowish," according to police. The two then rushed Corbin to the hospital.
Whitlow was arrested on suspicion of injury to a child and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
Police say the cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner's office. They say the investigation is ongoing and charges against Whitlow will be amended to include first-degree murder.
