TULSA, Okla. – A routine checkup ended with an Oklahoma couple in handcuffs.

Court records obtained by KJRH state that Justin McCaskill and Abigail Friedman took their 12-day-old baby to a doctor’s appointment. Doctors immediately noticed that the child had multiple bruises and was suffering from a broken femur.

McCaskill and Friedman told investigators that they had no idea the child’s leg was broken. McCaskill admitted that he dropped the baby a couple of days before the appointment, but says he caught him before he hit the ground, the affidavit states.

Doctors say the child’s parents should have noticed the broken femur with any movement, including diaper and clothing changes. In fact, detectives say it would have been excruciating for the baby.

Also, investigators learned that the parents missed three doctor’s appointments because they “are not morning people.”

Friedman and McCaskill were arrested on complaints of child neglect.
