Tre'viance Markese Walker, 22, of Norman, Okla. has been charged with the first-degree murder of his girlfriend's 5-month-old baby son, because allegedly, “the baby wouldn't stop crying.”

The infant is only being identified as "J.B.", according to a Dec. 19 report from The Huffington Post.

Court papers state that the baby died on Dec. 7 of head injuries received while he was being watched by Walker.

Walker allegedly told police that he was watching at the University of Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State football game on TV when J.B. started crying, and Walker responded by picking up the infant so aggressively that J.B.'s head "snapped back."

Making matter worse for the helpless infant, investigators shared that after J. B.’s head snapped back, Walker grabbed the baby by the back of his head, and then dropped him two feet to the floor below.

Reportedly, it wasn’t until hours later that J.B. was discovered to be unresponsive in his playpen, where he was discovered to have severe injuries to his head and blood flowing out of one of his ears.

Specifically, baby J.B. “had bruises on his forehead, cheek, nose and base of his skull. “

Autopsy results showed that the baby suffered a subdural hematoma to the brain.

Walker eventually admitted to manhandling and dropping the baby, after initially telling police he never touched J.B.

A neighbor, Jimmy Shannon, told the media that Walker was upset because he had lost $200 on the outcome of game.

"The baby wouldn't stop crying so he went, allegedly, and picked up the baby with such force as to snap the baby's neck," according to the neighbor.

Tre-viance Markese Walker is currently being detained at the Cleveland County jail on a first-degree murder charge, according to The Oklahoman.
