Tampa man, accused of throwing infant out of car, on trial

TAMPA, FL (WFLX) - The trial continues Tuesday morning for a Tampa man accused of throwing a baby out of a car window. This is Richard McTear's second trial for the death of 3-month-old Emanuel Murray.

Police say McTear got in an argument with the baby's mother in 2009 and threw the baby to the ground. He then picked him up and drove off with him. The child was later found dead along an interstate in Tampa.

A mistrial was declared last summer when the baby's mother used inflammatory language in her testimony. McTear faces the death penalty if convicted.
