BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma -- A Bartlesville man will stand trial for the death of a three-year-old boy last December.

Joshua Benton was bound over for arraignment Monday. He's charged with murdering Christian Norris, the son of his live-in girlfriend, in December 2010.

An autopsy revealed broken bones and other internal injuries. An affidavit showed Benton admitted to using force on Christian the night before he died.
