A 4-month-old boy died Sunday, a day after allegedly being shaken by his stepfather.

The infant, Elijah Llanos, was pronounced dead at a Loxahatchee hospital, Palm Beach County sheriff's spokeswoman Teri Barbera said.

Pablo R. Cano-Lopez, 20, of Lake Worth faces a murder charge.

Irma Llanos, 18, Elijah's mother, had left the child and his 1 1/2-year-old sister with Lopez at the couple's Lake Worth apartment Saturday while she went to school, authorities said.

Lopez told investigators he shook Elijah four or five times when the baby continued crying after being fed around 10 a.m., according to an arrest affidavit.
