    McKEESPORT, Pa. - Christian Clark pleaded no contest to homicide and attempted homicide in the case where she’s accused of killing her 1-year-old son and trying to kill her 2-year-old daughter to get back at the children’s father who she believed was cheating on her.

    Prosecutors played several videos and said Clark had been harming and threatening to harm her children for months.

    The father, Andre Price, has also been charged with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of children because police say he did not call 911 or try to stop Clark from killing her son and trying to kill her daughter.
