Father Who Threatened Baby In Front Of Police Sentenced
MURFREESBORO, Tenn.- A Murfreesboro father has been sentenced by a judge after trying to kill his 1-year-old son outside a hospital.
Glenn Climer Junior was charged with attempted second degree murder charges in Rutherford County. Police said Climer brought his toddler into a Murfreesboro hospital last November, but when he refused to take the baby to the ER, Climer threatened to break the boy's neck, right in front of police.
Police said Climer placed his hands on the baby's head and neck. The actions caused officers to be concerned about the child's safety.
The boy was not seriously hurt and was placed into the custody of the Department of Children's Services.
A judge sentenced Glenn Climer Junior to 29 years in prison for attempted voluntary manslaughter, child abuse, and assault.
