    Murder charges are expected to be filed Friday against the father of a 5-month old Mt. Prospect child who died Wednesday after being hospitalized for what authorities said was shaken baby syndrome.

    Ibrahim Kibayasi, of the 1700 block of Sable Lane, was being held on $2 million bond on charges of aggravated battery to a child in connection with the case. Prosecutors said the new charge will be filed at a hearing in Rolling Meadows and expect a new bond to be set.

    Kibayasi was arrested Sept. 3 by Mt. Prospect police after medical personnel at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge notified authorities that the boy appeared to be the victim of abuse.

    Prosecutors said Kibayasi watched the boy that day while the child's mother was at work. Kibayasi became angry at the child, shook him violently several times and threw him on a bed, prosecutors said.

    Kibayasi took his son with him to pick up the boy's mother, and she called 911 when she saw the baby was having difficulty breathing, prosecutors said. Paramedics took the child to the hospital where he was placed on life-support systems. Doctors also found the baby had three healing rib fractures, prosecutors said.

    In a videotaped statement, Kibayasi told police he grabbed the child around the waist several weeks ago and squeezed him hard, prosecutors said. He did not seek medical attention for the child at that time, prosecutors said.

    A citizen of Tanzania, Kibayasi came to the U.S. seven years ago on a student visa that has expired, prosecutors said.
