Antoine Petty, 33, killed his own two-month-old child. The Maryland father pleaded guilty to punching his son and then left him for dead in a car.
Petty later returned and buried the infant’s body behind a school.
Petty had punched his son when his wife, Geneice Petty, 24, had been unable to stop him from crying.
The baby was abandoned in a 1998 Lincoln town car hearse and then both Antoine and Geneice buried the infant in some woods behind a high school.
Some family members reported the infant missing to the authorities, and the couple led the police to the baby’s body one month later.
Antoine could spend the next 40 years in jail. His sentencing hearing is set to take place in October.
