Homosassa, Florida – A man was charged with murder after police say he suffocated his one-year-old son for video game time.

Cody Wygant, 24, was charged with third-degree murder. Investigators said Wygant told them he was frustrated that his 1-year-old son Daymeon was crying at 1 a.m. and placed his hand over the baby's mouth for three or four minutes, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

The newspaper reported that Wygant told police that he then placed the boy in a playpen, covered him completely with bedding and then tucked him in a way that did not allow the boy to get fresh air.

Wygant then played Xbox and watched three episodes of 'Fringe,' CBS News reported. Wygant did not check on the boy for a period of five hours.

Sorry BassGreat felons can vote. People with felony convictions can vote upon completion of sentence. People in prison, on parole and on probation cannot vote. People with felony convictions can vote upon completion of sentence. Some people with felony convictions cannot vote. Does it make a difference what party he belong too (I doubt if was even registered to vote) or what color or his income was? A baby is dead. Let's try to keep that in mind. I'm sure the baby was neither a republican or democrat. It's pretty sick to use his death to preach politics.

Well since some want to get political, we have the democrats that treat 20 yr olds like babies, then we have the republicians that think once a pregnancy occurs the baby should be born, even if the parents shouldnt even have a pet goldfish in their care. But what it all comes down to is this guy is scum.

Maybe the baby momma can send him pics of her new BF playing his Xbox that he loved so much! By the way where is the baby momma in all this? And why is the kid sleeping in a playpen instead of a crib? Obviously had money if he owns a Xbox.
