Dad who received video of lifeless son is headed to trial

A Pennsylvania man accused of not calling 911 when the mother of his toddler son sent him videos of the boy's lifeless body during hours' worth of angry text messages is headed to trial on child endangerment charges.

Twenty-four-year-old Andre Price Jr. waived a preliminary hearing on the charges Monday. His attorney didn't immediately comment.

Allegheny County police allege that the McKeesport man didn't alert authorities even though 21-year-old Christian Clark sent him videos of his 17-month-old son Andre III's limp body Nov. 1 amid threats to kill the child.

Clark is accused of smothering the boy and trying to kill their 2-year-old daughter. She waived her preliminary hearing last month and is jailed awaiting trial.
