PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman will stand trial 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 on Wednesday waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

Clark is accused of criminal homicide in the death of 17-month-old Andre Price III and attempted criminal homicide involving his 2-year-old sister. Charges of reckless endangerment and aggravated assault were also added Wednesday.

Authorities 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.
