A 22-year-old Eugene man has been charged with murder in the death of his 3-month-old son.
The Register-Guard newspaper reports Derek Ean Jackson was charged in Lane County Circuit Court Monday.
Deputy district attorney Bob Lane says a review of the case resulted in the more serious charge of murder after evidence showed the baby died as a result of being assaulted.
Jackson called 9-1-1 on June 19 to report that his son Ryder needed medical help. The boy died three days later and investigators concluded the father was responsible.
