Posted: Updated:
   OCEANSIDE (CNS/CBS8) - A 7-month-old boy died of suspicious injuries at a  Camp Pendleton hospital Friday, after which his father was arrested on suspicion  of killing him, authorities reported.

   Medical staffers at Naval Hospital notified Oceanside police about the  case shortly before 5:30 a.m., Oceanside Police Department Lt. Sean Marchand  said.

   Due to the severity of the child's condition, he was transferred to  another trauma center, where he was pronounced dead later in the morning.

   The exact cause of the infant's death was under investigation.

   During an interview with detectives, the child's father, Stanford  Morocho, 22, allegedly incriminating statements, Marchand said.

   Morocho was booked into county jail in Vista on suspicion of first-degree murder. He  was being held without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Tuesday.
