BETHANY, Okla. -- New details have emerged in the death of a two year old.

The man accused of murdering the toddler identified himself as the boyfriend of the child's mother to 9-1-1 dispatchers.

But for police, his explanation on the injuries didn't stack up.

Police say 22-year-old Dustin Davison called 911 just before two in the afternoon on Monday.

Units from all around Bethany soon converged onto the Bryan Hill Apartments.

"EMSA and [Fire Department] took over all medical aid at that time," explained Lieutenant Christopher Culbreath with Bethany Police. "The child was taken to the hospital as quickly as possible."

Officials found the child unresponsive and covered in bruises. The boy's skull was fractured.

What led to those injuries was unclear, because police claim Davison's story kept changing.

The discrepancies could be heard in the 911 recording as well.

When explaining to dispatchers what happened to the toddler, Dustin first says the child 'hit his head on the coffee table.'

But moments later, he claims he's not sure how the child was injured.

"I have no idea," said Davison during the call. "Like I said, I was in the shower."

The two year old was taken to OU Children's Hospital, where he later died.

Davison is a convicted felon. He pleaded guilty in 2012 to Second Degree Burglary.

He's now in the Oklahoma County Jail for First Degree Murder by Child Abuse.
