A Winnemucca man is being held on suspicion of
child abuse following the death of his 5-month-old son.
Twenty-one year of James Barker was arrested in Reno on
suspicion of child abuse causing substantial bodily harm after the
boy died Tuesday at Washoe Medical Center.
Authorities say the boy's parents told police the boy was
injured in a fall at their Winnemucca home Monday night.
According to investigators, doctors say the boy's injuries are
NOT consistent with a fall.
