Victor was apprehended at an Oklahoma City residence in the afternoon, but investigators were still searching for Jody.
A short while later, however, the infant’s lifeless body was found inside the home.
Upon arrival, officers learned that Victor had violently attacked the mother of his child, and then grabbed their infant son, and fled the scene in a U-Haul truck.
The baby’s mother got an emergency Victim Protective Order (VPO) on Feb. 23, which ordered his father to return Jody to his mother, according to KFOR.
Victor later sent a text message to a friend telling her to tell the baby’s mother that she would never see her son again, according to KFOR.
"Based on this information, it is believed that 7-month-old Jody Minjarez is in imminent danger of bodily harm or death," Norman police officials wrote in a press release.
He was also charged with a misdemeanor domestic abuse in the presence of a minor child offense on Wednesday.
