MIDDLETOWN, New York (WABC) -- A New York man is under arrest and facing murder charges after police say he killed his 7-week-old baby son.

Zachary Heil passed away due to complications from a brain injury at Westchester Medical Center on August 22, two weeks after police responded to a medical call for an unresponsive person at the Heil residence in Middletown.

He is currently being held without bail.
