NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a father could face upgraded charges after his 4-month-old son died from injuries sustained in an assault four days ago.

Police say Thursday that Nevin Jandu died Wednesday evening at a Queens hospital where he was being treated for brain damage and other injuries.

Queens prosecutors arraigned Jagsheer Singh Monday on assault and endangering the welfare of a child charges. They say Singh told investigators the baby fell off of a changing table Saturday.

But authorities say doctors found the child sustained multiple skull fractures and other traumatic injuries inconsistent with Singh’s account.

A lawyer for the 28-year-old Singh didn’t immediately return messages. He’s being held on $200,000 bail.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown has said charges against Singh will be upgraded if the baby were to die.
