(Scroll down for video) A father was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his son because he cried too much, police in New York said.
The New York Police Department said that they have arrested 51-year-old Jose Feliciano of the Bronx, after he and 31-year-old Danielle Whyte, who is a public school teacher, buried their 2-month-old son in a wooded area.
Feliciano was charged with one count of second-degree murder. Whyte has not been charged after claiming that Feliciano threatened to kill her if she called the police.
According to the police investigation, Feliciano became angry after the baby cried inside the apartment and suffocated the baby in his room.
The mother said that she poured water on the boy’s face to revive him, but it was too late.
Feliciano put the baby in a plastic bag and put the bag in a larger bag. Feliciano left the apartment with the bag around 11:00 p.m.
He put the bag in a car and left with the mother of the child.
Feliciano buried the body in Dover, in a wooded area with the help of the mother. On Thursday, the mother ingested pills in an apparent suicide attempt.
She was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and she was then transferred White Plains for a psychiatric evaluation. She told a doctor about her child, and the police were notified.
