HOUSTON -

A Houston father is in jail, accused of severely beating his 8-month-old son.

Jamayl Carpenter is charged with injury to a child. According to court documents, investigators said Carpenter first told officers his child pulls up on things and falls "all the time."

Officers said he later changed his story and confessed to hitting and shaking the baby because he wouldn't stop crying.

The baby suffered two skull fractures and retinal hemorrhages. He remains at Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital.

Carpenter is being held in the Harris County Jail without bond.
