Police say a baby that was taken to the hospital with severe injuries Monday night has died.

Paramedics found the baby with visible bruises when they responded to the Quality Inn near Gilcrease Museum Road and the Sand Springs Expressway. The suspect, 38-year-old Ezekiel Hadithy, told investigators that he dropped the baby in a laundry room, but police say evidence suggests there's more to the story.

Hadithy was originally charged with child abuse by injury and child neglect, but police say his charges will now be updated.
