It seems it is possible to love on a child too much. As unbelievable as it sounds, Robert Christian Kemp, of South Carolina, was charged with involuntary manslaughter Tuesday for killing a 14 month old with a bear hug. The Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office (OSCO) arrested the 26 year old.
Kemp allegedly asphyxiated the baby boy while hugging him tightly. He was babysitting the boy when the incident occurred, and the sheriff’s office describes him as a family friend. Although the incident took place in 2013, Kemp is just now facing legal repercussions.
His bond was set on Wednesday at $10,000.
