A Texoma man is behind bars on charges of Felony Child Abuse.  The Stephens County man is accused of beating his 15-year-old granddaughter. 

Stephens County Sheriff's said they arrested Jerry Aldridge after admitting to police he spanked his granddaughter with a 2x4 and then hit her in the knees with a baseball bat.

Police said the 50-year-old was also charged with Assault and Battery for punching his granddaughter's 18-year-old boyfriend in the face.

Sheriff Wayne McKinney said he is not sure what the girls living situation was before she was injured, but DHS is now handling the case.

His bond has not been set at this time.  He will make his first court appearance in December.
