Murder Charge In One Year Old’s Death

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–Police have filed murder charges against a man in connection with the death of a one year old child in late May.

Police and doctors believe that Bentley Olsen had been struck and shaken and the child’s injuries were not consistent with the account given to investigators by Branson Locks, the boyfriend of the child’s mother.

Locks was watching Bentley and his sister in May when the child was hospitalized. Locks, who told police he thought the child had a seizure, disappeared from the hospital later and was arrested the following week, hiding in a crawl space of a home.

Family members say Locks has had a drug problem. The police have also charged Locks with causing substantial harm to Bentley’s sister.

Doctors told police the little boy had head injuries, including abrasions, and his injuries were consistent with being struck or shaken.
