An Elsmere man is facing charges for assaulting his 7-month-old baby boy who later died from his injuries.
Prosecutors say the baby, Gaige Pyles, died Monday night at Cincinnati Children's Hospital from head injuries.
The baby's father, Matthew Pyles, 26, is being held at the Kenton County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
According to court documents, Pyles "admitted to shaking his seven month old baby son on Aug. 15, at his home in Elsmere. The baby sustained serious brain injuries as a result of the shaking."
Police suspect the crime happened at this Elsmere home on Saturday.
Investigators say Gaige was brought to St. Elizabeth hospital in Florence by his parents.
He was then moved to Children's Hospital.
Prosecutors said Pyles' assault charge will be amended to a murder charge when he heads to court next week.
