Adrian Thomas has been arrested and will be arraigned today on murder charges after his four-month-old son was taken off of life support and died. Matthew Thomas was one of six children in the Troy apartment ranging in age from 4 months to 9 years old.
When I laid back my head struck [Matthew’s] head…Matthew was still crying and it really got to me. I stood up from the bed and I picked Matthew up from the bed and I threw Matthew on the bed real hard. He started crying even harder…and having difficulty breathing…I never meant to hurt him. I am willing to go to counseling so I don’t hurt anyone else. I never intentionally meant to hurt my kid. I love my kids.Thursday I was arguing with my wife all day again…I walked into the bedroom and slammed Matthew down onto my bed. I slammed him down pretty hard. If Matthew wasn’t in my arms I probably would have punched a hole in the wall.
