A 3-month-old boy allegedly beaten by his teen father died Friday night at University Hospital, the Bexar County medical examiner's office confirmed.
was taken off of life support and pronounced dead just before 11 p.m., officials said.
The infant's father, Matthew John Resendez, 19, remained jailed Sunday on one count of capital murder. Bail has not yet been set.
The infant's skull was fractured, there was bleeding of the brain, bruising around the right eye and possible rib fractures, according to an arrest affidavit for Resendez.
Holden was hospitalized early Thursday after EMS and police were called to an apartment in the 17000 block of Henderson Pass on the city's North Side because the child was not breathing, said San Antonio police Sgt. Jim Cole.
The infant was taken to a nearby hospital but transferred via helicopter to University Hospital in what Cole described as “grave condition.”
Resendez told police, “I did hurt him,” adding the boy's head hit the wooden headboard when he was placed on the bed, the affidavit said.
Holden was the second child in two days to die from alleged abuse at the hands of a father.
