A southern New Jersey man has been arrested and charged with murder after he smothered his 4 week old son with a pillow last Thursday. Erik D. Griffin of Burlington City, stated he placed the pillow over his son’s face because the infant would not stop crying. Griffin fled the home after realizing the boy was no longer breathing. The child was found later in the day by his maternal grandmother, who attempted to resuscitate him, but was pronounced dead later at Burlington County’s Lourdes Medical Center in Willingboro.
