Police say a northeastern Pennsylvania man accused of killing his newborn daughter dropped a cinderblock on the girl twice because he said he and his girlfriend couldn't afford a second child. State police say 20-year-old Christopher Fitzpatrick led troopers to the body of the child Friday. Police say Fitzpatrick had told family members he dropped the girl off at a hospital after Jennifer Barrise gave birth in May but later admitted killing her.

Fitzpatrick and Barrise are both charged with homicide and are being held without bail. Police say they have a 1-year-old child together.
