LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas man accused in the death of his 3-year-old son told police the boy fell from the back of a couch, although detectives say that story seems far-fetched.

Clark County coroner's officials say 3-year-old Khayden Quisano died Friday at University Medical Center. His 26-year-old father, Jonathan Quisano, was booked into the Clark County jail on suspicion of murder and abuse.

Police received a call Thursday evening after medical personnel transported a severely wounded child from a Trimwater Court home to University Medical Center. Doctors say the boy had skull fractures, bruised lungs and an injured spleen.

Quisano told police the boy had fallen while playing on the sofa and said he didn't injure the child, but detectives say the injuries were too severe to come from one fall.
