New Info In Case Of Man Accused Of Throwing Baby Out Car Window

Newly released documents say a 21-year-old Tampa man accused of throwing an infant out of his car window in May had been threatening to hurt the child.

Richard McTear Jr. is charged with first-degree murder in the death of the 3-month-old son of a woman he'd been dating.

The child's mother, 17-year-old Jasmine Bedwell, told police that McTear was jealous of another man and had threatened to hurt her and her son, Emanuel Murray.

In documents released Tuesday, Bedwell said McTear beat, scratched and choked her, and threw the baby down on the pavement.

He fled with the child, whose body was found later by the side of Interstate 275.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for McTear.

    I hope their is justice served for this little baby. This is very disturbing to know that someone would kill and little baby like that.They need to take this man to a tall tall building and push him off and let him see just how it feels.

    Fiona..You dont know that about the mother because it never says in the article whether she was still dating this guy or not. If she was still dating this guy after the threats and knowing he is dangerous to her child, then yes, she should be charged. If she was trying to get away from this guy, then no, she shouldnt be charged. God bless this family and I hope that guy burns in H*ll!

    I agree with what has been said about this evil parasite, but the mother is just as guilty by having him around her child. She sounds like a self chosen uneduacated, selfush, ignorant "person" who should face charges of endangering her child and then sterilized to prevent any more victims.

    Chris, I agree with everything in your post but one thing, don't blindfold him, let him see what's coming to him..

    I guess he isn't man enough to go confront the man he is jealous of. He has to take his jealousy out on a woman and a defenseless baby. Sounds like he is a b!#$h, and can't fight a man. Drop him from a plane without a parachute, blindfolded and bound. see how he likes dying and being defenseless.

    Very sad. This man needs to be put to death. How could anyone in their right mind do this to a child??

    This doesnt change the fact of what needs to be done to him.
