Shoplifting Suspect Who Left Toddler Son to Die after Crash Gets Prison Term

A New Jersey man convicted of leaving his 2-year-old son to die after a crash in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is headed to prison. Authorities say Christopher Kuhn, of Hamilton, was fleeing after he shoplifted from the Levittown Town Center Walmart last October. He was found guilty in March of murder and other charges following a non-jury trial. The Hamilton man must serve between 8 and 30 years under the sentence imposed Monday.

Police say Kuhn fled the store after taking $228 worth of television speakers. He ran a red light and collided with two other vehicles, the impact throwing his son onto the road and fracturing his skull. Kuhn stepped over the injured toddler before running away. The boy later died at a hospital. Police say he wasn’t in a safety seat.   [Source: WFMZ69 News]
