Another stellar daddy, this one. He was a convicted drug felon on probation even before he "allegedly" murdered his infant son. Dad DEANGELO TREMAINE WILSON was babysitting while the mother was away, and apparently became annoyed by the baby's crying. So like any loving parent, he smothered the baby with a pillow and killed him. Daddy must have his beauty rest after all!

MONROE — The death of a child 10 months ago is now being considered murder after the Monroe Police Department arrested the boy’s father.
DeAngelo Tremaine Wilson, 32, of 406-D Plaza Drive, Monroe, was arrested Oct. 14 and charged with murder, cruelty to children, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and a probation violation in the Dec. 6, 2010 death of his 8-month-old son from asphyxiation.
Police investigated the death of Wilson’s son, Dyuntre, after a neighbor called 911 telling police Wilson said his son wasn’t breathing.
Emergency medical personnel responded to the scene and performed CPR on the child before taking him to Walton Regional Medical Center, where the infant was pronounced dead.
The initial report ruled the death accidental, but police were worried by certain evidence following the child’s autopsy.
“The medical examiner indicated there were obvious signs of abuse,” said Sgt. Darryl Powell, who arrested Wilson last week. “When we did the autopsy on the child, we saw he had a rib that was broken and bruising on his head and back.”
Officers attempted to speak with Wilson and the child’s mother, who was out of the house when the boy died, but neither would return calls or come to the police department.
With suspicions of child cruelty charges against Wilson, police arrested him due to a gun found under Wilson’s mattress during the initial investigation last year. Wilson, who was convicted of drug charges in Fulton County, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and police questioned him Oct. 14.
Based on evidence and information gained from the interview, police arrested Wilson on suspicion of murder, claiming he suffocated the child with a pillow found in the crib.
“The kid was crying and (Wilson) wanted him to sleep,” Powell said.
Monroe Police Chief Keith Glass said he was proud of his officers for the arrest.
“A horrible and sad thing happened to a child,” Glass said. “I’m very appreciative of the work done by our investigators and the assistance we had from the Walton County Department of Family Children Services, the Child Advocacy Center in Loganville and other assisting agencies.”
