Florida Infant Killed

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (AP) _ A father accused of throwing his
infant son into a canal and leaving him there to die is facing the
death penalty after a judge rejected a plea deal today.

Charles Tyson expected to plead guilty to second-degree murder,
which would have given him a roughly 30 year prison sentence. But
the judge rejected the deal.

In April 2006, police say Tyson tossed his 9-month-old son from
a car, slammed thebaby onto the vehicle's hood and then threw him
into a canal. Tyson was charged with first-degree murder,
aggravated child abuse, child endangerment and violating a
restraining order.

Assistant State Attorney Lanna Belohlavek says they agreed to
the plea deal at the request of the baby's mother.

A trial date was set for April 21st.

    A plea bargain. This man killed a 9 month old baby. Slamming it on the hood of the car and then throwing it into a canal. This man does not even deserve to serve life in prison or even a 30 yr sentence. This man deserves the death penalty! Wake up people do the crime do the time!!!
