Is that what his lawyer says?

Of course he didn't mean to kill the baby. He only wanted it to be quiet. How was he to know holding a nose would cause the baby to die. Just because he didn't check him for 5 hours didn't mean anything. People make such a big deal out of a mistake................................. ......................... ................

SARCASM ABOVE ^ ^ ^

He is an empty shell of a man and in prison he will be crying. Surely Xboxes aren't allowed in cells.

This is disgusting, but not unusual. The news is filled with stories of yet another man-child preferring to be perched on the computer playing video games and tending to his fake life rather than spend time in his real one.

Unfortunately, it's the innocent who suffer.

Never if you are male, if you are female, location matters very much. Sometimes after birth executions are acceptable in the U.S. It's up to the desires of mom.

I don't know, that's what the article says. This guy is a total clown, I was just pointing out the reason why he's probably only getting third degree charges - which seems too lax for this scenario.

Didn't a woman kill her daughter over farmville a few years back?

One must have a license to drive a car but any fool can have a child.

Crimes like this should have an added penalty of a vasectomy.

One man's idiocy isn't reason to justify eugenics.
