Two children were marked for death and the target of their mother’s rage – at their father.
Police arrested 21-year old Christian Clark of McKeesport and accused her of murdering her 17-month-old boy and attempting to kill her 2-year-old daughter.
The toddler was found unresponsive in a McKeesport home on Tuesday.
Police were called to an apartment in the Hi View Gardens housing complex for a call about an unresponsive child.
A criminal complaint says the boy’s death followed a series of text messages from Clark to the kids’ father, accusing him of sleeping with other women and demanding that he return home Tuesday night or else she would kill their children.
Police said they found the 17-month-old boy unresponsive, and paramedics transported him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
According to the criminal complaint, Clark 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 at the end of the message.
