BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) — Police say a Beaverton father has been accused of murder in the death of his infant child.

Police say the 7-week-old boy, Aden Russ Myers, was taken to the hospital Wednesday and couldn't breathe on his own. He was taken off life support the next evening.

The Beaverton police said Friday that 26-year-old Robert Myers first told officers he had fallen asleep on a sofa next to his son and awoke to find the child unresponsive.

The police said the father was arrested after he was questioned a second time.
