Montgomery County police say a Damascus man has been charged with first-degree murder in the beating death of his 3-year-old son.

WJLA reports that Brian O'Callaghan, 36, has been charged with first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in the death of his son, Hyunsu.

Investigators were called to Children's National Medical Center in Washington on Feb. 2 and told the boy's injuries, including trauma to the brain, indicated he had been beaten. The child died the next day and police say an autopsy determined the manner of death was homicide by multiple blunt impact injuries.

Police say O'Callaghan told investigators he was caring for Hyunsu for two days and took the unresponsive boy to an emergency center. O'Callaghan is being held without bond.

gee Brian I do so hope that someone offers you the same treatment as you gave an innocent 3 year old boy. Sometimes I honestly think it would be a good thing to have certificate to be able to reproduce.
