A man wanted on a child abuse charge surrendered after U.S. Marshals searched for him all day Tuesday.
Jimmy Wayne Murr, 20, turned himself in to Colbert Police, according to the Bryan County Sheriff’s Office.
U.S. Marshals for the Eastern District of Texas had been looking for him in the Denison area.
Murr was charged Friday with child abuse following an investigation by Durant Police into allegations that he severely injured a nine-week-old baby boy in January by shaking and squeezing him.
The baby was later transferred to Children’s Hospital in Dallas, and the infant suffered multiple injuries, including bleeding of the brain, brain swelling and fractured ribs, according to an affidavit by Lt. Chris Marcy.
An affidavit states that Murr became frustrated when the baby would not stop crying.
According to police, he admitted to shaking and squeezing the infant.
Murr was booked into jail on $100,000 bond.
The baby is expected to continue having medical problems, according to police.
