A four-month-old Queens boy died on Christmas Eve, after his father was charged on Monday with assaulting and endangering the boy.
Jagsheer Singh, 28, of Bayside, was accused of hurting his son Nevin Janduher, after doctors diagnosed the child with multiple severe skull fractures and brain injury from a lack of oxygen.
Investigators said the injuries likely occurred on the morning of Dec. 20 while Singh's wife slept after an overnight shift. Singh told police he went to prepare a bottle and came back to find the baby covered in feces.
Singh said he cleaned the baby, who then fell off a 4-foot-tall changing table. Officials said Singh then alerted his wife that the boy was unresponsive before calling paramedics.
The Queens district attorney's office said doctors at Flushing Hospital Medical Center found the injuries to be inconsistent with Singh's retelling, and that it appeared to be "non-accidental inflicted trauma."
Singh is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 5 and faces up to 25 years in prison if found guilty.
