Dad arrested on 1st-degree murder charges in death of 2-month-old daughter; tries to blame it on "two black males" (Midwest City, Oklahoma)

Another case where Mama was at work while Daddy was killing the baby. Dad JACOB LYNN WATSON has being charged with 1st-degree murder in the fatal abuse of his 2-month-old daughter. This guy is a special kind of sleezebag, the kind who blames everybody and everything. First it was the cat's fault (clumsy Daddy tripped over the darn feline, causing Daddy to drop the baby on the concrete floor wouldn't ya know). Then it was the fault of (drumroll) 2 black guys breaking into the house. But of course. Blame it on the mysterious (non-existent) black guys. Racism will get ya everywhere in Oklahoma, right? Then finally Daddy says he was "upset with his deteriorating relationship with his wife," (she was upset by his deadbeat @$$?) so that's why he bashed this infant till she had NINE DIFFERENT FRACTURES, including a fatal skull fracture. Poor Daddy was just so angry about that darn woman pickin' on him, you see.

MIDWEST CITY, Oklahoma – A Midwest City man is accused of killing his 2-month-old daughter.

Jacob Lynn Watson, 25, is being held at the Midwest City jail on a compliant of first-degree murder.

Officers were dispatched to an unresponsive baby Friday at about 10:45 p.m., at 2605 N. Thornton Drive. Officers found Brylee not breathing and began performing CPR. Brylee was transported to OU Children's Medical Center. Upon examination by attending physicians, it was determined Brylee was a victim of abuse, Police Chief Brandon Clabes said.

Doctors found Brylee suffered from nine different fractures including both arms, clavicles, her right femur, ribs and her skull, causing severe bleeding in the brain, Clabes said.

Brylee Watson died Monday at OU Children's Medical Center after having been on life support since Saturday morning.

Watson initially said he laid Brylee down in her crib and checked back on her a few moments later and she was not breathing, then he stated he was carrying Brylee when he tripped over their cat, dropping Brylee to the concrete floor then falling on top of her, Clabes said.

Watson then claimed two black males broke into his house, stole money from him and then physically abused Brylee and another 2-year-old in the home. Finally, Watson admitted to causing the injuries and said he was upset about his deteriorating relationship with his wife and took it out on Brylee, Clabes said.

"These are the cases that pull at your heart. This beautiful baby girl suffered severe physical abuse, probably from the day she was born, until her death and at the hands of someone who was suppose to love her unconditionally," Chief Brandon Clabes said. "When you look at the amount of fractures it is unimaginable the pain this child went through—probably more than most people experience in a lifetime."

Watson has a previous criminal record for larceny from out of Cleveland County and engaging in prostitution in Oklahoma County.

The remaining child in the home has been taken into protective custody and the investigation is still continuing.

Brylee's mother was at work when the infant stopped breathing, Clabes said.
