A Claremore man is jailed, accused of murdering his four-year-old stepson.  Police say 28-year-old Steve Lockler, Junior called 911 on Monday to say his stepson wasn't breathing.

Officers say Lockler told them the boy fell while bathing, but they noticed signs of trauma on the boy's body that looked like abuse.

They say their day-long investigation led them to arrest Lockler on a first degree murder complaint.
