PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a Phoenix infant critically injured after allegedly being shaken 15 times by his father has died.

Phoenix police say the 6-week-old boy died Tuesday.

They say 28-year-old Guadalupe Gonzales was booked into jail Monday on suspicion of child abuse and now will be facing first-degree murder charges.

It was unclear Wednesday if Gonzales he has a lawyer yet.

Police were called to a hospital Sunday when medical personnel reported an injured child.

Hospital officials say the child’s injuries weren’t consistent with what the dad told them.

Police say Gonzales told detectives he rolled off a couch while he was sleeping and fell on the baby.

The child’s mother told police that she returned home to find Gonzales holding the baby and crying and the infant wasn’t breathing.
