Clarendon, TX - A Donley County man remains behind bars on a 1.1 million dollar bond after investigators say he murdered his son.

The sheriff says 38-year-old Robert Babcock is charged with capital murder and domestic violence to a child relating to events that happened inside this home on Country Road W.

His son, Chance Mark Jones died Wednesday morning after being airlifted to an Amarillo hospital.

Authorities say the child died from severe head and torso trauma.

The sheriff also says this likely is not the first time Babcock beat his son.
