A father allegedly killed his baby daughter with a cinder block just hours after she was born - because he and the little girl's mother couldn't afford to have another child.
Christopher Fitzpatrick, 20, allegedly told his girlfriend, Jennifer Barrise, 'I just want to get rid of it' as she started having contractions while they were out shopping near their home in Lake Ariel, Pennsylvania. Both have now been charged with criminal homicide after police found their daughter's tiny body buried in woodland near Fitzpatrick's workplace.
Barrise, 28, already has five little boys, all aged under nine. The youngest, Christopher - her first child with Fitzpatrick - was born just a year ago in Franklin, New Jersey, where the couple used to live.
Now the couple are both being held at Wayne County Jail on murder charges. Police claim Barrise knew Fitzpatrick planned to kill their baby.
When Barrise had the baby, the little girl landed on the floor - and neither of her parents touched her as she lay crying, the affidavit claims.
According to police, Fitzpatrick drove his girlfriend, daughter and sister back to their home, but later picked up the baby and drove to M n D Lawn Care, where he worked.
There he allegedly picked up a cinder block and dropped it twice on his daughter's head, smashing her skull. Then he buried her tiny body beneath the concrete block and drove home.

He’s supposed to pay a doctor to do that during the birth. Then it’s an admirable and responsible decision - just ask Obama.
Just another late-term abortion - nothing to see here, move along. /s
What, no PBA in Britain?
A sonogram flag — yeah that’s offensive all right. To Satan.
Father, in your Son’s name, please welcome this little baby into Your arms.
Oh, it wasn’t Britain.
If the poor little baby had only kept a toe inside the mother, Barbara Boxer (and the rest) would have said, “Move along. Nothing to see here. No crime has been committed.”
Granted the cinder block would have been a little awkward, but a pair of scissors is customary.
My G*d, what have we become
Sometimes “an eye for an eye” makes infinite sense.
If he doesn’t get the chair, gen pop will have some fun with him.
Hasn’t this scum ever heard of adoption?
Just have a bigger, stronger inmate smash an anvil through his skull.
We have a vacation house up in Lake Ariel, PA. Beautiful place.
What sick minds are walking among us.... RIP Baby...
WHY IN THE WORLD could not this POS have taken the baby and left her at a hospital or fire station?
Or contacted an adoption agency?!
I would have loved to raise this precious little baby girl!
My heart breaks!
I cannot imagine what it must take to be in a mental place to do such a thing. To be so cold and dark... I don’t get it.
FWIW, This is good old-time Pocono's white trash doing what it does.
