The man accused of killing a Broken Arrow three year old was caught Monday evening.

Police have been searching for Jon Brandon Scarce since last week. He was arrested Monday just after 7 p.m. in the 3600 block of North Peoria.

The 3-year-old boy, Chance Trepp, was taken to Saint Francis Hospital where doctors found a fractured skull, bleeding around his brain and in his eyes, along with extensive bruises on his face.

Scarce was previously arrested for violating a protective order filed by an ex-girlfriend. She said Scarce beat and eventually killed her cat and sent her pictures to prove it.

In May of last year, Scarce also faced assault charges for hitting another woman twice in the face. She needed medical attention, and he eventually pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge.

In 2012, Scarce’s wife got a protective order claiming he had beaten her head on the floor and threatened their children.

Jon Scarce was booked into the Tulsa County jail on a complaint of child abuse murder. Jail records show he is being held without bond pending a court appearance on August 24.
