The Washington Times Daily - - NATION -

PITTS­BURGH | 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.

An­dre Price Jr., 24, waived a

pre­lim­i­nary hear­ing Mon­day. His at­tor­ney said that Mr. Price is still mourn­ing his son An­dre III’s death and that Mr. 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 said the McKeesport man didn’t alert au­thor­i­ties even af­ter Christian Clark, 21, sent him videos of his son’s limp body.

Ms. Clark is jailed on charges she smoth­ered the boy and tried to kill their 2-year-old daugh­ter.
