Father Suffocates Son
Some people don’t need to be parents. This child lost his life over a video game. Sad.
According to Mail Online
An Iowa jury took less than 45 minutes on Tuesday to convict a Mason City man in connection with his toddler’s death – which the prosecution allege was because the 18-month-old interrupted his father’s video game session.
The Cerro Gordo County jury found Kenneth L. Adams guilty of child endangerment resulting in the death of his son Owen on October 27th 2012.
Prosecutors alleged during the trial that the toddler head-butted his father during a temper tantrum and that enraged his father enough to hold a pillow over his son’s face until he suffocated.
The boy was rushed to Mason City Hospital, where he was pronounced dead and Adams now faces a mandatory sentence of 50 years in prison.
Assistant Cerro Gordo County Attorney Blake Norman said that the quick decision vindicated the decision by the county to bring child endangerment charges against Adams and not that of murder.
There was insufficient evidence to charge Adams with directly causing his own son’s death, so the county settled neglect resulting in death.
‘The fact that the verdict came back guilty does not bring back Owen. Owen is gone forever so we do not take any pleasure in this. But we do feel that justice was done for Owen.’
Adams’ wife, Tiffany, and other family members declined comment after the verdict was announced.
Sentencing is scheduled for November 8th and the conviction carries a mandatory sentence of 50 years in prison.
