NEW YORK - (AP) -- Police say charges have been upgraded against a father accused of assaulting his 4-month-old son who later died.

The baby, Nevin Jandu, died Christmas Eve at a Queens hospital where he was being treated for brain damage and other injuries. On Wednesday, police said the father Jagsheer Singh was arrested on a murder charge.

Queens prosecutors already arraigned Singh 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.
