(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–Las Vegas Metro Police have released the report detailing the death of a three year old that led to child abuse murder charges against’s the boy’s father.
Jonathan Quisano has been charged with murder in the death of 3 year old Khayden Quisano.
Last week, the child’s grandmother phoned paramedics to report the boy had been injured in a fall at her residence on Trimwater Court.
The father told police the child had fallen from a sofa while playing. Khayden was in cardiac arrest when found by paramedics and was later pronounced brain dead by doctors at University Medical Center.
The father was arrested after police were told by doctors the child had suffered a fractured skull and other injuries that were not consistent with a fall from a sofa. Doctors believed there were bruises to the lungs, and a lacerated spleen. The elder Quisano could offer no explanation to police other than the fall from the sofa, and admitted he was the only adult present at the time of the incident and the child was fine when the father had arrived at the home to watch him.
