Fresno police Tuesday booked Eddie Hamilton, 23, on suspicion of murder and child abuse in the death of his 3-month-old son.
The boy's mother, Lashonda Caldera, 25, was booked on suspicion of child abuse in the death of the child, Elijah Hamilton.
Friday, emergency medical personnel went to the Apple Creek apartment complex at 4781 N. Polk Ave. in northwest Fresno to answer a call for a nonbreathing infant.
The boy was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Lt. Shannon Galvan said.
Detectives investigating the boy's death later determined that the cause of death was fatal child abuse syndrome, Galvan said.
The boy suffered blunt force trauma on the day of his death.
Hamilton is being held without bail in the Fresno County Jail. Caldera is held on a $25,000 bond.
He has a pretty lame Myspace...can't find one for her.
Fatal child abuse syndrome??? Silly me...I just call it murder.
