BOSWELL, OK – A Boswell man accused of severely hurting a toddler will get his day in court.

38-year old Robert West was taken into custody by Choctaw county deputies this weekend in connection to the case.

West is charged with felony child abuse.

Deputies say earlier this month, they found a three year old boy with life-threatening injuries at a home located at 6th and Washington in Boswell.

Doctors say he had blunt force trauma and burns on his body.

Fortunately doctors were able to save the boys’ life. 

West's preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 25th.

He has been ordered to wear an ankle monitor as a requirement for his bond to stay at 49 thousand dollars.
