CHICKASHA, Oklahoma -- Police arrested a 21-year-old Chickasha man wanted in the 2008 death of his two-month-old daughter.

An arrest warrant for first-degree murder was issued Thursday, April 7, for Royce Lee Jarnagin.  Police arrested him the same day.

Jarnagin's daughter was rushed to the hospital in Sept. 2008. She died a few days later.

Court documents showed the child suffered from brain swelling and bone fractures, injuries consistent with a baby being violently shaken.
