PITTSBURGH (AP) - A preliminary hearing is set for a Pennsylvania man charged with child endangerment 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 lawyer for 23-year-old Andre Price Jr. says he's not sure whether Price will waive Monday afternoon's hearing to determine whether his client stands trial.
Allegheny County police allege 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 and threats to kill the child.
Clark is accused of smothering the boy and trying to do the same to their 2-year-old daughter. She waived her preliminary hearing last month and is jailed awaiting trial.
