A Homestead man was charged with second-degree felony murder Monday after police said he fatally beat his 2-year-old son.

Lee Willie Dejesus, 23, claimed he was giving his son, Willie Brown, boxing lessons when he hit the boy 15 times in the head, torso and shoulders inside his apartment earlier this month.

Willie was in a coma before being taken off life-support Thursday.

Dejesus is also charged with aggravated child abuse.

Miami-Dade Assistant State Attorney Kathleen Pautler told a judge Monday that prosecutors will seek an indictment for first-degree felony murder when a grand jury reconvenes in several weeks.
