Jury selection begins in child abuse case

Updated:

BARTLESVILLE, Okla. (AP) -- Jury selection has begun in the trial of a Bartlesville man accused of breaking the arms and ribs of his infant twins.

Regan L'Dridge Amster faces four counts of child abuse involving a son and daughter who were born in October 1999. Authorities removed the children from their home Nov. 30.

Amster fractured the left arm and ribs of one baby and fractured the right arm and ribs of the other child, according to information filed by Washington County assistant district attorney Steve Kunzweiler.

Court documents also charged Amster with abuse for "wrapping and tying a cloth diaper around the head" of the each child to keep a pacifier in their mouths.
