The Plainfield infant discovered last Friday night to have been beaten by his father has died, I learned from police sources Monday evening.

This means that the baby's father, Michael Bell, Jr., will face murder charges. Bell was apprehended on Saturday night trying to board a bus in Newark to flee the state, thanks to information developed by the Plainfield Police Division.

Bell is currently being held without bail at the Union County Jail.
