PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pennsylvania man accused of not calling 911 when the mother of his toddler son sent him videos of the boy’s lifeless body during hours’ worth of angry text messages is headed to trial on child endangerment charges.
Twenty-four-year-old Andre Price Jr. waived a preliminary hearing Monday. His attorney says that Price is still mourning his son Andre III’s death and that Price was a doting father who didn’t take action because the woman had made similar, but empty, threats in the past.
Allegheny County police say the McKeesport man didn’t alert authorities even after 21-year-old Christian Clark sent him videos of his son’s limp body.
Clark is jailed on charges she smothered the boy and tried to kill their 2-year-old daughter.
