Dad Accused of Not Calling 911 While Mom Texted Him Video of Dead Son Faces Trial

Pennsylvania dad to stand trial for not stopping toddler son's video death

A Pennsylvania man will stand trial on child endangerment charges because police say he didn't call 911 while the mother of his 17-month-old son killed the boy while sending him two hours' worth of angry text messages, pictures and videos.

The attorney for 23-year-old Andre Price Jr. didn't immediately comment after waiving a preliminary hearing on the charges Monday.

Allegheny County police allege that the McKeesport man didn't alert authorities even though 21-year-old Christian Clark sent him videos of his son's limp body Nov. 1 amid threats to kill the child.
