FRISCO, Texas—Police have arrested a suburban Dallas man on a capital murder charge in the death of his 22-month-old son.
Jacky Scott Garrett of Frisco was charged Thursday in the Oct. 11 death of his son, Logan.

Frisco police Sgt. Bradley Merritt said the incident stemmed from the father and son playing while the mother was out of town. The arrest affidavit says Garrett told police he “knocked the wind out of Logan” while they were wrestling.

Autopsy results revealed that the child died from blunt force trauma to his stomach.

Merritt said Garrett remains in the city jail Thursday with bond set at $75,000, and that the investigation is ongoing.

Jail records list no attorney for the 40-year-old suspect.
