The mother of a 19-month-old baby who died June 19 at Johnston Memorial Hospital was arrested Tuesday morning on a charge of first-degree murder.

 

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokesperson Jessica Brown said Victoria Wagner, 19, was taken into custody on an arrest warrant at 10:45 a.m. at a Tishomingo business by Johnston County Sheriff’s deputies.

 

Wagner remains in the Johnston County Jail pending the posting of a $50,000 bond.

 

Brown said an autopsy report from the State Medical Examiner determined Jason Guzman died of internal bleeding resulting from abdominal trauma. OSBI investigators determined Wagner struck the child hard enough to cause the bleeding.

 

Following the assault, Wagner took her child to Johnston Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
