Perhaps the baby would have survived if this shithead had reacted appropriately.
http://trentonian.com/articles/2010/...0077304133.txtAll Erik D. Griffin wanted to do was stop his 4-week-old baby from crying. Police said he accomplished that goal by suffocating little Nyir Griffin with a pillow, killing him.
Prosecutors said their investigation revealed that Griffin on Thursday — Veterans Day — placed a pillow over Nyir’s face to stop him from crying. Authorities said Griffin removed the pillow once the infant stopped crying.
But at that point, authorities said, Griffin noticed his son was no longer breathing. With the child unresponsive, Griffin reacted by leaving the residence while his child lay abandoned inside the house, authorities allege.
Nyir was later discovered by his maternal grandmother, who attempted to revive the unresponsive child, according to the prosecutor’s office.
Griffin is also the father of a 16-month-old daughter, according to Joel Bewley, a spokesman for the Burlco prosecutor’s office.
