The baby, Donovan Siberon, was found unresponsive at the family’s apartment on April 24. He was taken to Bridgeport Hospital, and then transferred to Yale New Haven Hospital, where he died the next day.

Police say the child suffered head injuries and the death was ruled a homicide by the state medical examiner.

Derrick Siberon is being held on $250,000 bail. It could not immediately be determined if he has a lawyer.
