Md. Man Charged in Death of 3-year-old Son

Posted: Updated:

DAMASCUS, Md. (AP)- Montgomery County police say a Damascus man has been charged in the death of his 3-year-old son.

Police announced Tuesday that 36-year-old Brian O'Callaghan has been charged with first-degree murder and child abuse resulting in the death of his adopted son, Hyunsu, earlier this month.

Investigators were called to Children's National Medical Center in Washington on Feb. 2 and police say they learned that the boy's injuries, including trauma to the brain, indicated he had been beaten. The boy 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.
