DAVENPORT (KWWL) - A two-month-old boy who was allegedly beaten by his mother's boyfriend has died.  Davenport Police Sgt. Frankie Wilson says Chase Kloppenborg died Friday, two days after being taken off of life support at an Iowa City hospital.  Bryan M. Fix has been charged with child endangerment causing serious injury. He remains in the Scott County jail without bond.  He is accused of beating the child on Nov. 19. He was arrested the following day.  Fix's case has been given to the state public defender's office, which could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.  Wilson says the Scott County Attorney's Office could decide next week whether to upgrade the charges against Fix.
