A jealous woman allegedly killed her own 17-month-old son in a bid to get back at the child’s father, who she thought was cheating on her. After a three-hours-long argument via text messages, the 21-year-old mother Christian Clark became increasingly enraged. She informed the father of her two children that she was about to “kill” them. She then sent a video message to the man showing the two children, 17-month old son Andre Price III and 2-year-old daughter Angel, laying face down on an inflatable air mattress indicating that Andre “is not even breathing.”

The Daily Mail reports that 21-year-old Christian Clark has been arrested on charges of criminal homicide after she allegedly smothered her 17-month-old son to death during an argument with the child’s father, Andre Price Jr. Clark was reported upset with her children’s father for allegedly cheating on her. Price left for work at 2:00 pm and at approximately 8:25 that evening, Christian began fighting with the man via text messages, accusing him of cheating on her.
According to WPXI, the fight would continue for approximately three hours before Christian would indicate she was going to hurt the couple’s two children. During the text message exchange, Christian became even more agitated as Price continued working and barely responded to her rants. In response, Christian tells Price, “Ya kids ain’t safe here.”
“Ya kids ain’t safe here. I don’t want them here. Answer me or I’m going to jail for child endangerment.”

When she didn’t receive the response that she wanted, Christian then reportedly text Price at 10:01 pm indicating she was going to kill the children by sending a text that said “‘I’m killing them” along with “laughing so hard I’m crying” emojis. Shortly, after sending the death threat text messages, Christian then sent Price a video message of his children’s bodies lying face down on an air mattress.
Christian said she “wasn’t going to” send the videos but that she is pretty sure “ya son is legit dead.”
“I wasn’t even gonna send you videos but pretty sure ya son is legit dead. I’m going to jail either way. Hope it was worth it.”
In the horrific video, Christian informs the camera that Angel, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter” is “alive and sweating,” but little Andre is “not even breathing.”
“Ah, look Angel is still alive and sweating. Your son on the other hand is not even breathing.”
Price immediately told Christian she had ruined his life and told her to call the police. After further conversation, Christian says she is “sorry” she did this, and she “didn’t mean to.” She indicates that she was calling 911. When police arrived, they took the children to the hospital, but Andre Price III would be pronounced dead.

Initially, Christian Clark told police that she found the child unresponsive on the mattress, but when police confiscated her cell phone, Christian’s story quickly changed, and she reportedly admitted to being responsible for the toddler’s death.
The 2-year-old daughter Angel is expected to fully recover as the investigation into the horrific murder continues. Christian Clark is currently being held in Allegheny County Jail waiting for a bond hearing. There is no word if additional charges will be filed against Christian for the injuries and attempted murder of her daughter, Angel.
