LAS VEGAS -- The hospitalized baby allegedly abused by a Nellis Air Force Base airman died Monday, the Clark County Coroner's Office confirmed.

Aiden Leach, who was 3 months old, was hospitalized on Feb. 2 in critical condition. A doctor who treated the child told police, the boy's injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome. The coroner's office has not released the cause of death.

The child's father, Andrew Leach, 31, was arrested after his child was taken to the hospital. Leach told police he had dropped the baby while bathing him. Leach is being held in the Clark County Detention Center.

His next court date is Feb. 20.
