A Duchesne man is accused of fracturing the skull of his girlfriend's 1-year-old son.
The man, 23, was to care for the boy March 8 while his girlfriend was at work, deputies wrote in charges filed Wednesday in 8th District Court.
Instead the man left the child's aunt in charge and spent most of the day drinking at his girlfriend's brother's house, investigators wrote. The man went home to put the child to bed, deputies wrote. The man later told investigators he spilled beer on the toddler, so he drew a bath in the tub even though it was late at night, deputies wrote.
