    Police say a McKeesport, Pennsylvania woman, charged in the death of her 17-month-old son was arguing with the boy's father in a text exchange prior to smothering the boy, and is accused of sending him a video of the boy's body after his death. Christian Clark, 21, is facing charges of criminal homicide in Andre Price III's death and attempted homicide for attempting to smother her 2-year-old daughter. (Published Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016)

    A Pennsylvania man has been arrested on child endangerment charges because, police say, he didn't call 911 after the mother of his two young children sent him videos of his son's lifeless body during two hours' worth of angry text messages.

    Andre Price Jr., 23, was jailed without bond early Friday on two counts — one each for, 17-month-old Andre III, and a 2-year-old daughter.

    Allegheny County police say the McKeesport man didn't alert authorities even though 21-year-old Christian Clark sent him videos of his son's limp body Tuesday night.

    She's jailed on a homicide charge for allegedly smothering the boy and attempted homicide for attempting to do the same to her daughter.
