A 31-year-old Marlow man is charged with child abuse by injury after an infant's bones were broken.

Marlow police say Christopher J. Easley was arrested Sunday after he admitted to breaking the baby's upper and lower left arm, left femur and three ribs.

Investigators say Easley' wife told them he denied hurting the 2-month-old, but that she'd seen him use a closed fist to push the little boy's stomach and ribs, supposedly to help with constipation.
Easley could face life in prison if convicted because of a prior felony.He's being held on a $500,000 bond.
