Baby dies after being thrown from car in US

Baby dies after being thrown from car in US

A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after police said he threw his ex-girlfriend's 3-month-old son from his car on an interstate highway killing him.
The child's lifeless body was found on the side of a major highway near downtown Tampa early Tuesday. The man, Richard A. McTear Jr., was captured several hours later but has not yet been formally charged. Deputies said he is not the child's father.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said McTear was arguing with his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend, Jasmine Bedwell, at her apartment when he began beating her and the child. She reported that McTear threw her son, Emanuel Wesley Murray, down on the concrete, then picked him up and fled in his Chevrolet Impala.
Sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter said the medical examiner's office will determine at what point the baby died.
Deputies located McTear's car at his home. Witnesses told deputies where he could be found, and he was arrested about four hours later after a foot chase.
