"Good dad" charged with 2nd-degree murder in death of infant daughter (Clinton, Missouri)

Doesn't matter if you have a history of drug felonies. Doesn't matter if you're dead drunk/stoned while watching kids. Doesn't even matter is you kill the baby, apparently by crushing and smothering her while you're under the influence. Some fool will still declare that you're a "good dad."

I can guarantee you that if this perpetrator had been a mother, she would have been smeared by the same neighbors as a useless bitch.


Clinton man charged in death of infant daughter

Police says Richard McNabb fell asleep on baby

CLINTON, Mo. —A Henry County man has been charged with second-degree murder after police said he fell asleep on top of his infant daughter.

Police said they found the girl unresponsive in a Clinton home late Sunday. They took her to a hospital, where she died.

Investigators said her father, Richard McNabb, 32, was watching the baby and a 2-year-old child. Witnesses said they found McNabb on the couch with the baby underneath him.

Police said he appeared confused and may have been under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicating substances.

Friends and family members said they don't think McNabb would have ever hurt the baby on purpose.

"They were good parents. I feel sad for everybody," said friend Sherrie Oles. "He was a good dad and I know he's got to be going through hell right now."

McNabb was being held on suspicion of second-degree murder and child neglect. His bond on a previous felony drug charge was revoked. His bail has been set at $100,000.
