ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -- A St. Louis man accused of beating his seven-month-old son this week could face more severe charges following the baby's death.

29-year-old Daniel Wilson now faces child abuse and assault charges, but those charges could be be upgraded after Dawson Wilson died Thursday night at a St. Louis hospital.

Court documents say Wilson admitted repeatedly hitting Dawson in the head and dropping him on a counter Monday at the family's home in Dogtown
