PITTSBURGH (AP) – A Pennsylvania woman is due in court on charges she sent angry text messages threatening to kill her toddler son – and, eventually lifeless pictures of the boy – during a jealous argument with his father.
Twenty-one-year-old Christian Clark is jailed on charges of criminal homicide for allegedly killing 17-month-old Andre Price III and attempting to kill his 2-year-old sister Nov. 1.
Allegheny County police say the McKeesport woman sent a barrage of angry texts, threats, photos and videos over more than two hours that night, then later confessed to smothering the boy.
The children’s father, 23-year-old Andre Price Jr., is jailed on child endangerment charges for not calling 911 about the threats.
Clark’s attorney hasn’t returned calls for comment. Price is due in court Dec. 12 and his attorney hasn’t commented.
