Suburban Pittsburgh police arrested a 21-year old woman on murder and attempted murder charges. Christian Clark, left, of McKeesport is accused of killing her 17-month-old boy and attempting to kill her 2-year-old daughter.

Meantime, the children’s father, 23-year old Andre Price Jr., below right, faces child endangerment charges because, police say, he didn’t call 911 after Clark sent him videos of his son’s lifeless body during two hours’ worth of angry text messages.

Clark reportedly accused Price of cheating with other women.

Clark told police Price had been in the apartment that afternoon but left earlier to travel.
She threatened to kill the children if he did not return to the home Tuesday night.

Police say, by 10:14 p.m., Clark sent her first  video to Price,  showing the children lying face-down while Clark says:

Ahh look Angel is still alive and sweating your son on the other hand is not even breathing, I wish I could keep the camera still.”

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 allegedly smothering the boy and attempted homicide for attempting to do the same to her daughter.

Local Pittsburgh TV station WTAE, reports,  the criminal complaint against Clark states that she exchanged text messages with Price after he left the apartment, allegedly saying things like,“Ya kids ain’t safe here I don’t want them here,” “So you better pray for your kids”and “I’m killing them,” with a laughing emoji.
