NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) _ A father is accused of fatally shaking his 2-month-old boy and was on suicide watch in a Connecticut prison.

Police say 24-year-old Adam M. Browne called 911 from his New London apartment early Friday morning to report that his son was limp and not breathing. While a dispatcher walked Browne through emergency medical procedures, the fire department sent personnel and transported the baby to the hospital.

New London police say the baby died Saturday.

Browne was charged with first-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor and was arraigned in New London Superior Court. It was not known Sunday if he’s represented by a lawyer.

Police say more charges are expected to be filed.
As of Friday, Browne remained in prison on suicide watch and medical and mental health watch.
