A Pennsylvania woman is due in court on charges she killed her toddler son and sent a video of the boy's lifeless body to his father during a jealous, vengeful rage over text message.

Twenty-one-year-old Christian Clark is jailed on charges of criminal homicide in the death of 17-month-old Andre Price III. She is also charged with trying to kill his 2-year-old sister.

Allegheny County police say the McKeesport woman sent a barrage of angry texts, threats, photos and videos over more than two hours Nov. 1, then later confessed to smothering the boy.

The children's father, 23-year-old Andre Price Jr., is jailed on child endangerment charges. Police say he should have called 911.
