Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia State Police say they've arrested two relatives in connection with injuries suffered by a 5-week-old infant.

Police say 23-year-old Morgantown resident Jessie Louis Duran was arrested and released on bond after a court appearance Tuesday.

He faces two felony counts of child abuse causing bodily injury and one count of child neglect causing risk of injury.

No one immediately responded to a message left for Duran on Tuesday.

Police say the infant suffered a fractured skull and leg and several broken ribs.

Police say they arrested another relative, Morgantown resident Amanda Duran, earlier this month on a charge of obstructing a felony investigation.

A working telephone number for Duran could not be located.
