BETHANY, Okla. — The call came just before 2 p.m. Monday from the Bryan Hill Apartments in Bethany.

“We got called to this apartment complex, on a two year old child with a head injury,” Lt. Christopher Culbreath said.

Fire and EMSA rushed to treat the toddler. The little boy was transported to OU Children’s Hospital where he later died.

“Upon preliminary investigation and interview with caretakers, the caretaker was arrested for first degree murder,” Culbreath said.

The caretaker, who police have identified as 22-year-old Dustin Davison, was actually the one who called 911.

Davison is in the Bethany Jail tonight, but is expected to be transferred to Oklahoma County Jail for first degree murder.

The toddler’s name has not been released as police continue to notify family.
