TULSA, OK -- A jury is deliberating in the case of a 19-month-old boy's death.

JJ Hall was 19-months-old and his mother left him with her boyfriend, Larry Neeley, on August 19th of last year.

Neeley testified that he pulled JJ off a bunk bed and on the way down, the boy's stomach hit the corner of a dresser. JJ's liver was lacerated and he died within minutes.

Neeley's attorney says Neeley never intended to hurt, let alone kill, the child.

However, doctors testified that the amount of force that would cause those injuries were equal to something they'd see in a car crash.

The jury can choose between first degree murder, second degree manslaughter or not guilty.
