Victor Minjarez is facing charges of murder and desecration of a corpse.

A Oklahoma man has been charged with murder after the 7-month-old baby at the center of a statewide Amber Alert was found dead.

The case began back in February, when police responded to a domestic abuse call. Shortly after, Jody's lifeless body was found inside the home off of Venice Blvd.

An Amber Alert was issued for Jody on the morning of March 7.

Titans Plan to Release RB DeMarco Murray
The Tennessee Titans will release running back DeMarco Murray in a cost-saving move, the Titans announced Thursday afternoon. After rushing for 1,289 yards in 2016 as the Titans' lead back, he split carries with Derrick Henry in 2017.

On Thursday Minjarez admitted the child died more than a week ago when he burned to death while sleeping next to a heater, and claims he didn't report it because he 'didn't know what to do'. According to an earlier police statement, Minjarez allegedly violently attacked the baby's mother and then fled the scene with Jody in a U-Haul pickup truck. However, investigators believe he is likely in the Oklahoma City metro, possibly staying at a motel or with a friend. Officers also found the body of an infant in a plastic bag inside a trash can on the property.

KFOR reports that days later, the mother obtained a protective order mandating the boy be returned to her.

The father did not clarify exactly when this happened, but said Jody had been dead for at least a week. He was arrested and authorities canceled the Amber Alert.

Minjarez later sent a text message to a friend saying the child's mother would never see her son again, according to KFOR.
