Dad charged with felony endangering charges in death of 4-month-old son (Bryan, Ohio)

Another "babysitting" daddy who couldn't manage to keep the baby alive and welll while poor Mama had to work. Dad KEVIN OEHLER has been arrested on felony childhood endangering charges in the death of his 4-month-old son. Sounds like the baby died from abusive head trauma. No doubt Daddy got "frustrated." That's how these stories usually go.

Hat tip to Annie.

Bryan father jailed in son's death
Thursday, July 29, 2010

BRYAN, OH -- A four-month-old baby is dead and his father's in jail, facing felony charges for the infant's death.

Police say it happened in Bryan in Williams County, where the man was arraigned today.

Kevin Oehler, 20, faces felony childhood endangering charges. His son, four-month-old Aiden, died at Toledo Children's Hospital.

Debra Taylor says she watched police converge on Oehler's apartment complex Monday evening. Emergency crews took the infant to the hospital.

Relative Kathy Martin says they "ran all kinds of tests and had tubes, said no brain activity."

The infant died Tuesday night. Police will not say exactly what happened and the Lucas County coroner was not available.

Oehler is at the Correctional Center of Northwest Ohio facing second degree felony charges. We were told "he was the one with the baby, nobody else. He was watching the baby and she was at work."

A judge set Oehler's bond at $300,000. Court documents say he's next due in court August 5.
