ALBION, Wash. -  The 5-month old seriously injured allegedly by the mother's boyfriend has been upgraded from critical to serious condition. The 5-month-old infant was found with an apparent brain injury.

Nathan Cranfield made his first court appearance on Monday afternoon where his bail was set at 250,000.

Doctors tell authorities the injuries are consistent with shaking a baby and after talking with Cranfield police felt they had enough evidence to make an arrest.

He's charged with 1st Degree Assault of a Child. Cranfield is originally from Kentucky and had been living with the child's mother since June of this year. He's expected to be back in court this Friday.

In a news release Sheriff Brett Myers says medical personnel responded early Monday to a call  that the child was not breathing. The the infant was taken to Pullman Memorial Hospital, then flown to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, where the child is in critical condition.
