THE DIRTY ARMY: (CNN) — A Florida man has been charged with first-degree murder after authorities say he threw a 3-month-old boy out of a moving car on a Tampa interstate. Police say infant Emanuel Murray died after his mother’s ex-boyfriend threw him from a car on a Florida interstate. Richard Anthony McTear Jr., 21, was arrested Tuesday, hours after a confrontation at his former girlfriend’s apartment in which he snatched the child, the Hillsborough County sheriff’s office said.
A passing motorist found Emanuel Wesley Murray’s body on the interstate. An autopsy determined the child died of blunt trauma to the head, the county medical examiner’s office said.
Video on CNN affiliate WFLA TV showed McTear being led out of a Tampa police squad car after his arrest. He ducked his head as TV cameras surrounded him on his walk into a police building.
When asked by reporters if he had thrown the child out of the car window, McTear answered, “It’s a dirty game. A dirty game.”
He deserves the death penalty. I decided.- nik
